Alice Inanimate - Reading Power - Questioning (deep)

Hello kids, I would like to share with you some of my thoughts regarding Alice Inanimate. It is really important to have in mind that we have two type of questions, which are fast and deep questions.

We shall be working with Alice's wonderful trip in Italy which is Chapter 2. Take some minutes of your time and read it, just for you to remember you have to enter julesverneschool.edu.mx. and you can read it there.

A fast question is:

Where is Alice? Alice is in Italy

How many sofas are in the living room? There are two sofas

These are fast questions because you find the answers in the text.

A deep question is:

What would I have felt if at the age of 10 I would have lost my parents? I had a feeling of panic because I think my life would have been really different. Also I thought poor little girl, what happened to her parents.

What would have happened if Ayisha was not in her house when Alice phoned her? I think that Alice would have tried to call some one else, probably her best friend.

In a deep question the answer is not written down on the text, you have to question yourself and answer it by yourself.

Now it is your turn to share with me a fast question and deep question for this chapter.
