Types of Questions Defined Broad Question -    A statement or question that anticipates a  variety of acceptable and sometimes unpredictable responses. When a teacher asks such questions, they are hoping for unplanned,  divergent outcomes.  These questions require that the students utilize  thinking processes in ways that are unique to the individual rather than  planned by the teacher. Broad questions allow the student to make sense of  and explore their own ideas freely, in their own terms, without restrictions  and with only minimal guidance by the teacher.  These questions are useful  to encourage students to synthesize ideas, extend ideas, deduce and predict,  or organize elements of what they’ve learned into a fresh pattern. Broad  questions encourage students to share various ideas during a discussion and  to value other students’ ideas as they are expressed.
