Reflection: Gradual Release Ask and Answer Questions - Section 3: Guided Practice


In this lesson I was hoping that my students would get away from asking questions that had obvious answers.  As my students asked their questions, I had to stop several times and remind them that we wanted to ask questions that led to deep understanding of the text and/or helped us make inferences.  It helped when I told my students to think about how they would feel if they were the characters in the story.
