How can content area teachers reinforce comprehension skills while maintaining focus on their curriculum? Questions such as the examples included in this product can promote the understanding of the content areas, as well as specific comprehension skills, through discussion and/or written expression. (Specific examples are provided for Art, Health, Math, Music, P.E., Science, and Social Studies.)
In addition, generic questions that can be used or modified for content areas are also included for teachers seeking to apply comprehension skills in various subjects.
These sample questions were created for and welcomed by special area teachers in a rural elementary school. They were later shared with special area teachers in urban and suburban school settings.
