People often ask me about question types. If you don't know what the 4 types of question are, start by reading the lesson linked here.
Now look at the two questions below. A student wrote to me this week to ask whether they should be treated as "opinion" or "discussion" questions.
- Is this a positive or negative development?
- Do the advantages of this development outweigh the disadvantages?
What do you think? Which of the four question categories (opinion, discussion, problem / solution, two-part question) do the above questions fit into? And can you find any previous lessons on this website that could help the student who asked me about this?
