How to come up with critical thinking questions.

Questions are one thing, but critical thinking questions are another. I have a difficult time reading a passage, then coming up with thought evoking questions. Does anyone have any tips?

mostly from Critical Thinking Asylum
    Is the writer credible? Are they an expert?
    Is what is written a matter of opinion or of fact? Are all of the facts presented?
   Is this written for a public or private audience? Whom?  Is there a chance for someone to respond?
   Was this written before, after or during the event written about?
   What was the authors purpose? Explanation, Exposition, Persuasion, Criticism ? 
    What is the emotional tome? Happy, sad, angry, unemotional, didactic?
Each of these either are critical questions or lead to critical questions.
