I’d prepare a series of questions about the text and tell the student how questions can be implicit and explicit and provide them an example of both the type of questions. Furthermore, I’d explain the levels of questions and where the answers are found. Then I assign a reading and the QAR questions which have been developed for the reading. Students read, answer the QAR questions and discuss their answers. I’d explain to students
how they can use this strategy on their own. After using the QAR strategy several times, the students can begin to make up their own QAR questions and in small groups share with their classmates. I’d tell students how they can utilize this in their own reading and learning. The major purpose of this activity is that students learn to help themselves. This task enhances students' self-learning ability. Assessment: As the classroom activity is QAR, the assessment for this text would be different instead of asking students to write down the or fill the blanks I’d ask students to describe to the class their favorite part of the story and why they liked it? if presented an opportunity what would they do in the same scenario? Is there anything more they wanted to add to the story, or they thought an alternative side of a chapter that could make the story a better one on a whole?
