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.
