Questioning Questioning, asking and answering questions as you read is a strategy that can help you learn important ideas. As you read:Strategies: Question words Strategies: Think Questions Starters Ask Questions Who? What? What do you think...? How do you know...? Challenge yourself with think questions When Where How do you think...? Why, or why not...? Answer your questions with complete information or explanation Why? How? What do you predict...? Do you think...?
Build Background: Think-Pair-Share For their readers club presentation, the Explorers team decided to ask their classmates questions about the story Sir Robert’s Treasure. But they had a hard time coming up with questions to ask. What suggestions do you have that might help the team think of questions? Think about what Rachel learned in her dreams. Think about how you turned my statements into questions.
Let’s watch the DVD! Rachel woke up from her dream with some helpful information about questioning to share with the rest of the Explorers. Today they will use that information as they read the rest of chapter 1 of Sir Robert’s Treasure and ask one another questions. Let’s pay attention to how many of the question words on our list the Explorers use. You will read the story along with them and ask and answer questions with your teams. Turn to page 1 of Sir Robert’s Treasure in your Student’s Viewing Guide.
Team Talk 1.When Eli said he wasn’t good at asking questions, where did Kate suggest that he look for help? 2.Why do you think it’s a good idea to use different question words? 3.Did the Explorers use a question word that you didn’t use? What was it? Did you use a question word the Explorers didn’t use? What was it? 4.Rachel asked Carlos a question about the meaning of the word quiver. Was that a simple question to answer or a hard question to answer? Do you think it was a good question to ask? Why? 5.When Eli asked Kate a question she could answer with “yes” or “no”, Jenny suggested Eli ask it another way. Do you remember why Jenny said its better not to ask a yes or no question?
Team Discussion In your partnerships, discuss the answer to the questions on page 1 of your Viewing Guides.
Let’s Summarize ---Manual Who can tell me something he or she remembers about the Doomed Forest?
Jackson’s Challenge (page 2 S.V.G) ---Manual Dear Students, I’ve learned that if you ask different kinds of questions, you’ll learn more about the story. Read the following paragraph about Charlotte Tremaine silently. With you partners, see how many different questions you can ask. Use as many question words as you can. Then compare questions with your teammates to see who used the most question words. Good Luck! Jackson
Charlotte Tremaine is the youngest daughter of Sir Robert and Lady Mary Tremaine. She has two sisters named Ann and Catherine and two brothers named James and Edward. Charlotte was born on the Tremaine estate in Garren. She is a pretty girl, tall, with long, blonde hair. But don’t let her good looks fool you! Charlotte is smart and strong-willed. She likes to have her way! Along with her brothers and sisters, Charlotte studies at home with a teacher. She’s read a great many books. For fun, Charlotte likes to ride her horse, and climb trees so she can look over the castle wall and see what the king’s children are doing. Charlotte is very curious.
