 Guided Comprehension: Self-Questioning Using Question-Answer Relationships
 Students who are struggling readers need more assistance with comprehension to help them become successful, independent readers. Strategic reading allows students to monitor their own thinking and make connections between texts and their own experiences
 Students will: Define and understand the types of QARs Answer literal and inferential questions and identify how and where the answers were found Work in pairs and small groups using a text and the self-questioning strategy to identify types of questions and find answers Generate questions that demonstrate an understanding of each QAR
 Poster board indicating the QARs Worksheets with passages, questions and in some cases answers
 Powerpoint presentation to introduce topic of QARs
 Break the implementation into activities over three 'days'. Day one: Teacher-directed whole-group instruction Day two: Teacher-guided small groups and student-facilitated independent practice Day three: Further solidify techniques through work on a larger passage of material with question to be answered.
 Work over several days in small groups with teacher observation and guidance. As well there should be interaction between students to determine QAR techniques to be used.
Checking For Understanding:
 The assessment for this lesson can be done informally through anecdotal notes and observations. You can also assess students' understanding of the QAR strategy using the comprehension sheets that they completed during the lesson and the activities that they worked on during the student-facilitated comprehension centers.
 Close out the lesson with a question period (a few prepared questions) to spur on discussion of the topic.
