Question-Answer Relationship – Reading Strategy

(0)
Time poor but want to make sure you provide higher order comprehension question for texts studied in your lesson? This strategy is for you! I wish I’d come across this reading strategy earlier in my teaching career! A series of posters to be used in conjunction with the study of any classroom texts using the QAR reading strategy. The posters are designed to be general so that they can be used with any text studied in any subject. The idea is that you have a ‘go to’ set of engaging and differentiated questions and comprehension prompts, saving you valuable prep time and incorporating high quality learning activities every time! The series includes: - Poster 1 highlights the 4 levels of comprehension questions and where the student will find the answer. - Poster 2 and 3 highlight and prompt student as to where to locate answers to comprehension questions and develop these skills so they can apply them in other settings. - Poster 4 highlights the types of questions for each level and how to answer the questions from each level. This resource has been thoroughly designed so no extra prep or specialised ability is needed! It can be used to form a standalone literacy lesson or can be left as a cover lesson activity. It can also be easily adapted to suit other lessons you may have already planned. This lesson should be accessible to Year 4-10/ KS2 and KS3 students. QAR allows you to create differentiated comprehension activities and provide a challenge for more able students. *One file has UK/AU spelling and the other file has US spelling. QAR introduction lesson for students can be found here https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/introduction-to-question-answer-relationship-for-students-reading-strategy-any-text-any-subject-11338638 QAR induction professional development for staff can be found here https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/introduction-to-question-answer-relationship-for-staff-whole-school-reading-strategy-11338684 Please rate if you enjoyed!
