Abstract

The research question addressed is how to develop the ability to question to increase reading comprehension. The motivation for this capstone was to get students to think while they read and become more involved in the text by asking questions before, during and after reading. Not just questions that are easily answered on the pages of the book, but questions that encourage them to dig deeper and explore what the author is not telling them. This capstone describes explicit instruction in developing the skill of asking questions through modeled, guided and independent lessons.
