Answering Questions in Complete Sentences Using Restating Strategies

Answering Questions in Complete Sentences Using Restating Strategies

Students must be able to answer questions in complete sentences both orally and in writing. When students generate a constructed (written) response they are indicating to their readers that they understand what the question is asking. The restating strategy teaches students to use part of the question given to construct a response. CISQ, TTQA, PQA are strategies which students can use to guide them in perfecting this necessary skill. This resource contains the following: CISQ poster TTQA poster PQA poster Bookmarks for each strategy Notebook Sheets for each strategy I created these for teachers who are in need of visual references which can be used for students to refer to especially when they need a quick reference while writing. These posters are recommended for beginning writers or for students in need of remediation. SUGGESTED USES FOR POSTERS: Classroom posters can be used as a teaching tool to recognize goals, set expectations or to introduce or review concepts. They can be used as standalone aids to help students master particular strategies and techniques. The following are different ways of using classroom posters: 1) They can be printed standard size (8.5x11 inches) and bound into a booklet as a study resource for students as an individual or small group activity. 2) As anchor charts 3) They can be used as reference books for small group use. Simply print and slide pages in sheet protectors to compile a binder or folder document. They can be used as individual reference charts. Simply print the black-line version (if available) onto coloured paper for students to stick in their notebooks or interactive journals.
