Comprehension Question Stems
Questions' are those where you can physically place your finger on
the answer i.e. 'The answer is here!' They are sometimes refered to
as 'low level' or 'knowledge based' questions.
are three pages of question stems that I use in my reading sessions
to improve reading comprehension..
to use this guide:
when running a Guided Reading Session have these question stems next
to you and formulate appropriate questions as you see a context.
hand these question stems to your group and ask them to, 'Pretend
that you are a nasty, nasty teacher who lives only to make children
suffer. Use these questions stems & try your hardest to 'stump'
them but also improve their comprehension of what is read' - You
might be surprised how well your students rise to this challenge :)
Have other groups answer the questions.
Perhaps you could have the children make their questions into a crossword
puzzle using Crossword
