  • Good readers continuously ask and answer questions about the text as they read. They usually do this spontaneously – as if they are “talking to themselves” as they read. This strategy not only helps readers to comprehend a text, but also supports their particular purpose for reading a text, for example to find out how to do something.
  • At entry-level, learners will need support to develop and use question-asking and question-answering as a strategy to help them understand text. As you’ll see in the next section, the most effective way to explicitly teach this strategy is through modelling using a shared reading approach.
