Extended Learning Questions


Extended learning questions cannot be answered by simply looking in the text of a Web site. Instead these questions instruct students to comprehend, apply, analyze, and evaluate what they’ve learned. This type of questioning makes students consider the content of their assignment, and helps them to explore different aspects, while simultaneously inspiring individual creative thought processes.

To create an Extended Learning Track, follow the examples below when writing questions in your annotations.
