A simple example of a low level question would be: In the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, what did Goldilock eat and why? A question like this can be lifted right of the pages of the story. However, a question like, what type of consequence should Goldilocks face for what she did and why. Questions that stimulate thinking support critical thinking.|
