Title: CTR:: QUESTIONING THE AUTHOR: AN APPROACH FOR ENHANCING STUDENT ENGAGEMENT WITH TEXT
Description:
Despite teacher's best efforts, students often fail to understand many of the ideas presented in school textbooks. This is a common concern among educators who encounter students who are not actively engaged with what they read. A strategy called Questioning the Author (QtA) is an approach designed to establish student interactions with text to build greater understanding. When students read in a QtA lesson, they are taught to question the ideas presented in the text while they are reading and thus help with reading and improve comprehension. 113 pages
