Ask Questions About a Text (Interactive Notebook + Posters)


Share it:



Good readers not only answer text-dependent questions as they are reading, but they also apply the metacognitive reading strategy of ASKING questions as they are reading. This fosters deep comprehension of the text.

This interactive notebook is for teaching how to generate questions about a text. In my class, I tell my students that I will choose the 10 best questions and turn it into their reading quiz for that week. They love it because they feel like the teacher. Little do they know that they are reading more closely than ever when trying to create questions.

First, teach them about the types of questions. I use the Bloom’s Taxonomy model. Included in this packet is an interactive notebook for teaching the different levels of questions. They lift up the flap and write in the question starters. You may want to focus on one level a week, instead of teaching them all the same day.

The kids refer back to it whenever you want them to generate questions about what you’re reading.

Also included are 5 sentence starters or frames for every level for your own reference when you are teaching them. I also created posters you can display around your room after a new question level has been taught.
