Questioning is effective for improving comprehension because it gives the students a purpose for reading, focuses attention on what must be learned, helps develop active thinking while reading, helps monitor comprehension, helps review content, and relates what is learned to what is already known (Armbruster, Lehr, & Osborn, 2001).
QAR supports Common Core Ask and Answer techniques across multiple grade-levels and curriculum areas.
Here are just a few:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.1.1 Ask and answer questions about
key details in a text
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.2.1 Ask and answer such questions as
who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate
understanding of key details in a text
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.3.1 Ask and answer questions to
demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the
text as the basis for the answers.
This packet contains:
• 17 anchor charts to teach students the QAR strategy: Definition of each type of question, comprehension strategies that can be used, and sample question stems for each strategy, steps to find answers in the text, and more!
•Student copies of steps telling how to find answers in the text.
•Over 40 question stems to sort. This will help students gain a better understanding of different types of questions.
•Book marks for students with the four different types of questions.
•Sheet for students to write questions (this can be used with any text).
