Literal, Interpretive, and Universal Questions

posted Dec 5, 2013, 7:31 AM by Ashleigh McWilliams
Literal questions can be answered straight from the text.

Interpretive questions require you to make predictions, inferences, and draw conclusions based on the text.

Universal questions connect the ideas in the text to a theme or idea that applies to the world, other texts, and other time periods.  It is not text-dependent.
