Transcript of QAR (Question-Answer Relationships)

QAR: Question-Answer Relationships
Right There
"In the Book" or text-based questioning
This is a literal level response, and is located right in the text. This is beginning the journey of Bloom's taxonomy, or the first steps toward critical thinking.
They answer what, where, when, and identify or list answers.
Example "Where did Ender go after he saved the world?"
Think and Search
"In the Book" or text-based questions
Think and Search questions ask students to interpret what they read, and then organize the ideas in order to to get at the answer. "Think" about connection, and "Search" through the text to figure out what information or sentence will answer the question.
This type of question explores making comparisons, formulating predictions, and drawing conclusions.
Example: "How is Ender different than Peter?"
On My Own
"In My Head" or reader-based questioning
This type of questioning asks the student to speculate and apply text information to their own experiences in order to better understand meaning and comprehension of the text.
These questions ask the reader to make personal connections, make associations, and activate background knowledge to form an answer.
Example: "How would you help Ender deal with leaving home?"
Author and You
"In My Head" or reader-based questioning
These kinds of questions ask students to interact with ideas presented by the author, and marries these ideas with prior knowledge. It acknowledges relationships between the text and what knowledge is already with the student.
This questioning forces the student to use speculation, invites exploration, and asks the student to apply all of the information to make educated guesses about the connections.
Example: " Why is Ender the chosen one?"
This strategy centered around questioning was developed by Raphael, (1986), and teaches students to make connections between text they are reading and prior knowledge. Comprehension increases through this strategy because students must work their way through the various levels of cognitive processing (think Bloom). There are four kinds of questions, two types are text-based, and two types are reader-based. The four categories or types of questions are: Right there, Think and search, On my own, and Author and you. Questioning moves from text-based to reader-based.

When to use this Strategy:

Preparing students for standardized testing.
When developing an understanding of informal and narrative text.
Helping students create questions about what they read, and synthesize the text at the same time.
