Using Question-Answer Relationship (QAR) to Enhance Your Literacy Instruction

For years I have loved to use different ways to get my students thinking about what they are reading. In this high stakes testing world, it is more important than ever.
Using the QAR strategy can be helpful for many students as they read various texts. It helps them to think about where they can find the answers to the questions.

That is why I have embraced using the Question-Answer Relationship with my students, especially since I work with the struggling readers.

Believing in the Magic of Christmas

Using various comprehension skills can help students find theme in the books they read. Using read alouds helps them on their journey to better comprehension. Santa's Book of Names is perfect for that.
