Direct Instruction

T: Readers, today we are going to learn a note taking strategy that will help us learn and remember important information from non-fiction text. We will write down facts, questions and responses while reading. 

 

This is a 3 column note chart called FQR. Explain each column of the FQR. The FQR helps us keep track of our thinking and synthesize new information.

F- facts as directly stated in text

Q-Questions we have while reading/I Wonders

R-Responses to author’s purpose, connections, new learning, inferences, visualizations

 

Model your use of your FQR strategy while reading an article from National Geographic Kid. Emphasize during model that you are not just writing down any facts! You are writing facts that a reader needs to note. Important facts.

You can also use a text such as Martins Big Words.
