Complex Thinking Prompts

Marlys WeaverStoesz

“Planning a lesson that uses all four of the following types of questions can transform classroom questions into analytic tasks that require students to think at increasingly complex levels.”

 – Robert Marzano

Four types of questions:

Details – ask questions of students for recall or recognize details

Characteristics – move the focus to the general characteristics of the topic being studied

Elaborations – ask students to elaborate on the characteristics of and elements within a category

Evidence – questions require students to provide support or evidence for their elaborations
