The main purpose of this activity is for students to understand how to ask authentic questions that relate to the main idea (essential question) while reading informational text. It is also intended to provide your students with a purpose for learning. Often times, informational text will have more information than what is needed. The essential question will help focus your students’ learning to what you want them to learn.

Activity in a Nutshell
After you, the teacher, determine an essential focus question for informational text, the students will be asked to write down what they already know about the topic, ask authentic questions, answer the authentic questions, and form a conclusion based on supporting details.

The main focus of this activity is to have students understand the importance of having a purpose established beforehand for reading. Students will hopefully understand that having a purpose will allow them to focus on the important information. This is especially the case with informational text.

For this activity, students will read the same text (Marley’s General Store & Parlor handout) but reflect in a different way based on their purpose for reading.
