How do you teach your students to think about and respond to questioning? Over the years, I have used both QAR and Jan Richardson’s stoplight questioning. I’ve found that a mix of the two work perfectly for my third graders. Once students understand what type of questions they are being asked and how to respond, our literature talks and book circle conversations become much deeper. Also, students become less frustrated on reading tests because they have another tool in their toolbox to help them be a success.
