I first used this graphic organizer when showing my students "Remembering Anne Frank" - by providing them with sentence starters they were really able to hone in on what skills I wanted them to demonstrate. Rather than them just viewing the movie and not truly absorbing the information, they were actively involved in analyzing and thinking about the information. They also came up with more questions than i had asked for.
Using sentence starters, they are asked to come up with three "thick" questions, three statements, and three inferences.
I also made it cooperative so that they were actively engaged win learning with each other.
