Popular RUNNERS reading strategy is written as a song to the tune of Aretha Franklin's RESPECT. My 5th grade students loved the song and even had an "American Idol" competition with the song.
RUNNERS is a test taking reading strategy that requires students to:
R-Read title and make a prediction
U-Underline key words in questions
E-Enclose key words
R-Reread questions, eliminate poor answer choices
S-Select best answer
