A great resource to help guide students in the Questioning process before, during and after reading any type of text. This resource is made to be adaptable to study and question various types of meaningful text.
First 2 pages: include a detailed checklist to ensure students are questioning and thinking about the text before, during and after reading. Some examples are: making predictions, questioning the title and word choices, the 5 W's, the author's purpose of writing the text, etc. A definition box also clarifies the various forms of "text".
Next 3 pages: serve as blank templates for jot notes for each process of reading (before, during and after). Students will jot down any questions, comments, thoughts, etc on these sheets as they read through their text. This will help students organize what they are questioning into the 3 stages of reading.
The last page: Serves as a guided brainstorm template. The instructions encourage students document any connections they make, images that come to mind as they read, comments/concerns,etc. This last page clearly states that they are allowed to represent their ideas in any way which serves them best (visually by sketching, collaging, writing down notes, quotes, etc.) This is a great way for students to record what they visualize as they read.
