Why are there so many text-dependent questions?

It is important to know that we do not expect teachers to ask ALL of the questions we’ve provided.  Our rather exhaustive sets of question are intended to support teachers in the scaffolding that will be necessary to meet the needs of all learners, and because the careful study of these questions and how the questions are constructed will help teachers to craft similar text-dependent questions about other texts on their own.  Indeed, the Alexandria Plan can be used effectively as a professional development tool.
