Christine Posted July 11, 2008 Share Posted July 11, 2008 I need help forming questions. Truly. Thought provoking, exxcellent writing assignment type questions. For example, DS1 will be doing an American Gov't course (Thinkwell). My thought for "proving" understanding was to give him some essay questions. . . Blank. . .nada. . .zip. . . zilch. Well, that's not necessarily true. I can come up with fantastically broad questions, i.e. "Describe everything you know, in great detail, without omitting anything, regarding our government." (make it 5 paragraphs) :lol: No, I'm somewhat joking. But, I have discovered that I am either way too broad or too narrow in scope. Hmmm, I guess "questions" is not exactly the appropriate term. . . But, it's not just for DS1 (highschooler) that I suffer. Lest you think this should be on the highschool board. I have this problem for all my children. Now, I've asked this question on other boards, and I can not tell you how many times I've been directed to Bloom's Taxonomy. People, it's like a "pig staring at a wrist watch". (Hubbie's term, but it fits.) Truly. . . For example, "describe" is on that list, and you all saw what I accomplished with that! (I can see why multiple choice has become so popular.) So, do you have any suggestions? Are there any books on the matter? Training courses for those that lack the intuitiveness on the matter? Anything?
