Methodology
  • The lesson begins with an open-ended question asked by the teacher after reading
  • Students provide responses
  • The teacher then provides follow-up comments or questions built on each other.
  • Discussions result and students are able to consider the author's point as well as student's point.
  • Teachers are able to model the QtA approach by discussing aloud their thoughts about the questions they ask while reading.
