The following document is a selection of "asking questions" cognitive strategy mini-lessons. Each mini lesson is easy to teach and can be taught with either the listed book OR your personal book choice. Each lesson is concluded with an "Independent Strategic Reading Lesson" in order to allow students to actively practice the cognitive strategy. 20 mini-lessons are included! Various graphic organizers for the lessons can be purchased from my store, which compliment these lessons or you may use your own.
