"Many readers don't know where their answers come from when responding to questions while reading. This leaves us open to the potential of making numerous mistakes when trying to analyze the information found or implied in the books we read. For example, the EOG tests you take at the end of each year asks us to think about the questions asked and to come up with the best answer possible based on information from the reading selection and/ or what we already know. Many answers to the questions are actually directly stated in the text, but we fail to know where our answer comes from. In some cases, the answers are not found in any one sentence, rather, information can be pulled from numerous places within the reading selection. And, sometimes, the answer is not in the reading selection. I know these types of questions can be very frustrating to many of you. I have heard students say, "How am I suppose to know?" several times when answering questions. In reality, when you are reading and want to find an answer to a question, the answer may or may not be “right there” in the text. Sometimes the answer is directly stated, but, other times, you have to think beyond what is there in the text. Today, you are going to learn how to figure out where your answer needs to come from when reading. Once you figure that out, you will become a better reader and experience great success!"
