To strengthen reading comprehension skills, a teacher explains the Question-Answer Relationship strategy (e.g., “When we understand how questions are written, we are better prepared to answer questions about a text.”). Next, a large chart is presented outlining the four QAR subcategories (i.e., “Right There”, “Think & Search”, “Author & You”, “On Your Own”) and each QAR is explained by the teacher. Using a recent read aloud of [[ https://www.scholastic.com/content5/media/products/88/9780590439688_mres.jpg | The Story of Ruby Bridges ]] by Robert Coles and a [[ http://www.readwritethink.org/files/resources/lesson_images/lesson227/comprehension.pdf | QAR comprehension sheet ]], the teacher demonstrates how to determine a question type and the thought process that occurs based on how it’s identified to produce an answer. After, students join in to complete the activity. Before students practice with new texts, a teacher asks students to generate their own new QAR questions to monitor understanding.
