Product Description
This product connects the questioning portion of reading comprehension instruction to social studies and history by incorporating information about Pocahontas. These activities may be used whole group, but they are designed for small guided reading or intervention groups as well. Included are opportunities for students to use Question-Answer Relationships, understand specific question words, identify important information, and use sentence manipulatives to form questions and purpose statements. Forming purpose statements is particularly important in math problem solving, and many of our students struggle with this skill. This activity will help students improve that ability as well.

Students will also have the chance to create questions of varying levels on their own with the included graphic organizers. Helping students understand QAR will improve their comprehension and higher order thinking skills. Students will sort a variety of questions into "Right There," "Search and Find," "Author and Me," and "On My Own." Research has shown that Taffy Raphael's QAR strategy, designed in the 1980's, has given students a strong foundation in questioning. This product incorporates this research-based strategy to help your students develop strong reading comprehension.
