The Self-Questioning Strategy
The Self-Questioning Strategy helps students create their own motivation for reading. Students create questions in their minds, predict the answers to those questions, search for the answers to those questions as they read, and paraphrase the answers to themselves.
In research studies, students showed average gains of 40 percentage points in reading comprehension of grade-level materials after they learned the strategy.
