QAR Question-Answer
Relationship Questions and answers
have relationships. Just like people. And like relationships between people... relationships between questions and answers
are not all the same. You can look at people and guess the relationship by looking for clues. You can look at a question and guess the relationship with the answer by looking for clues. The different question and answer relationships fall into two basic categories: 1. Right there. Questions whose answers are easily found in one sentence
in the text are right there answers. Clues to recognizing this relationship are when the questions begin with "Who is...?" "What is...?" "How many/much...?" "When did...?" or "Name a....?" A way to find answers for right-there questions is by looking in the text for the words used in the question. This is the easiest answer to find, and doesn't require careful reading of the text. II. Think and search. The answer is not going to be in one spot. You will need to find pieces of the answer scattered in a few places in the text, and then put the answer together in your head. These questions will often begin with phrases like "For what reason...?" "How did...?" "Why was...?" or "What caused...?" These answers require some brain work, but you might stumble on the correct answer without reading the whole text. III. Author and me The answer is not in the text. You need to think
about what you know, what the author says, and how
they fit together. Some examples of phrases used for Author and Me questions: "Would you...?" "Which character...?" "Did you agree with...?" and "What did you think of...?" For this question, it is very important that you understand the text. You have to compare how you think or feel with what the author has said. You can not do this correctly if you don't have a viewpoint on what the author has said.
IV. On your own The text got you thinking, but the answer is
inside your head. The author can't help you much. So think about it, and use what you know already about the question. Some examples of phrases used for On My Own questions: "Do you know...?" "Have you ever...?" and "Would you ever...?" These questions are often trying to get you to identify with the text. A very good answer will refer to something in the text and something in your own life or something you have read or seen.
In the text In the brain With practice, you will be able to spot strange or mismatched question and answer relationships as easily as you spot other mismatched pairs.
