Reviewer Comments:

This PPT presents four clearly defined levels of inquiry – literal or memory (who, what, where, when) questions; convergent thinking (why and how) questions; divergent thinking (imagine, suppose, predict) questions; and evaluative (opinion) questions. The presentation is intended to act as a discussion starter. The questions are varied and generic and would generate conversation about any topic.
