PREP.TL5-Purpose-Questions

In this lesson, we focus on the Purpose Question type. Purpose Questions are found in conversation passages about non-academic issues. The student needs to identify the purpose of the passage. Sometimes it is explicitly stated and other times the student must infer it.

PREP.TL6-Inference-Questions

In this lesson, we examine the Inference Question type. We provide several exercises where students identify whether statements based on a passage are True, False or Inferred.

PREP.TL7-Function-Questions

Here we explore the Function Question type where a student identifies the function of a given piece of language (e.g. verification, correction, agreement etc…).

PREP.TL8-Attitude-Questions

In this lesson, we examine the Attitude Question type which asks the student to identify a speaker’s point of view, opinion or attitude. We provide a framework for differentiating between facts and opinions in a passage.

PREP.TL9-Organization-Questions

Here we explore the Organization Question type where a student identifies the organization structure of information that is presented. These questions usually appear in the context of academic lectures. The student must pay particular focus to linking and transition words which can help identify the organization style.

PREP.TL10-Connecting-Content-Questions

Connecting Content Questions require the student to complete a table which shows relationships between information in a lecture or conversation. We provide strategies for these classification focused questions.
