Children love to ask questions. Encourage your students to ask knowledge building questions while they read.
We as readers ask questions because we are curious, want to expand our thinking, want to build vocabulary or just want to know the answer.
This unit starts by introducing learners to "how" to ask questions. This is modeled in both whole group and small groups. Learning how to generate good questions is the first step.
Next, the unit explores questioning through popular childrens' literature.
The Stranger by: Chris Van Allsburg
An Angel for Solomon Singer by: Cynthia Rylant
Grandfather Twilight by: Barbara Berger
Finally, students will be choosing their own "just right book" and ask relevant questions throughout the text.
A grading rubric is provided for individual assessments.
Questioning is an essential strategy to learn as a reader and lifelong learner.
