QAR - Reading and Learning strategy

The QAR strategy is an after reading strategy that promotes active comprehension and provides students with a way to think about questions and answers. QAR outlines where information can be found "In the Text" or "In my Head." It then breaks down the actual question-answer relationships into four types: Right There, Think and Search, Author and Me, and On My Own. Explicitly teaching key reading comprehension and learning skills - making connections, self-questioning, visualising, inferring, determining importance, summarising, synthesising and self-monitoring - can help students become more purposeful, active readers, thinkers and learners.
