(See the thumbnail and Preview) Students infer, draw conclusions, predict, define unknown words, analyze characters and more. Responses follow the Question Answer Relationships (QAR) model and develop the critical reading required for Common Core standards.

Also provides two models: one features chapter questions with extensions from a history textbook (see the thumbnail) and the other model is for short story questions from a literature textbook.

All you prepare is the reading selection and the questions.
