Generating Leveled Questions

Students benefit from using reading comprehension strategies while reading complex text because it helps them recognize when they do not adequately understand text. Teaching students to generate questions while reading is one way to get students to pause at regular intervals to think about what is being communicated and how the information relates across paragraphs. Students are taught about different “levels” of questions, how to generate these questions while reading, and how to answer their questions, citing information in the text.
