This graphic organizer is extremely helpful in helping students monitor their comprehension while reading.
BEFORE READING: Students preview the text then create questions before reading.
DURING READING: While the students read, either through modeled reading, shared reading, or independent reading, the students focus in on trying to answer their questions based on information gathered through the text.
AFTER READING: For questions that are not answered in the text, students may be able to infer or predict the answers using the information and their prior knowledge.
This graphic organizer can be used across content areas and also can be used in small group or whole group instruction.
