Welcome to Trading Spaces Tuesday! A group of reading specialists, reading teachers, and literacy coaches have collaborated once again to bring you fun and informative blog posts about literacy instruction (and perhaps a few freebies along the way!) I am not here today, as I have traded "spaces" with another blogger!
Kylie from Ripper Reading Resources is here today to share about a reading strategy that gives a new twist on the QAR questioning strategy. Kylie is from Australia where she has classroom experience as well as experience working with teachers for professional development and teaching at the university level. She is currently working on her Ph.D.
And now for Kylie's post....
I want to share with you one of my favourite reading strategies...it's the 4H strategy...you can find resources to support it at my TPT site.
The 4H strategy is an innovation on three level guides and Question, Answer, Relationships (QAR), by Taffy Raphael.
The 4Hs are: Here, Hidden, Head and Heart - Is the answer literal, right here in the text? Is the answer hidden, do I need to think and search? Is the answer my own opinion or based on my past experience; so is it in my head, or is the answer how I feel, therefore in my heart?
If you scroll down my blog, you can learn more about this comprehension strategy and pick up some freebies on the way.
I have also made a freebie just for this post that you can pick up here or by clicking on the image below.
I would love to hear from you if you use this strategy with your students and have success - I just love it!!!
Thank you so much, Kylie for sharing about the 4H strategy!
