  5. 5. The Questioner <ul><li>Ask questions which will help the group to understand what has been read. </li></ul><ul><li>Thinks of questions to ask as they read the text. </li></ul><ul><li>Who… </li></ul><ul><li>What… </li></ul><ul><li>When… </li></ul><ul><li>Where… </li></ul><ul><li>Why… </li></ul><ul><li>How… </li></ul><ul><li>What if… </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Summariser <ul><li>Tell the group what you have read in your own words. </li></ul><ul><li>Only tell the important information, not the little details. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep it as short as you can! </li></ul><ul><li>It is a reminder of what has been read so far. </li></ul><ul><li>The most important ideas are … </li></ul><ul><li>The main idea is … </li></ul><ul><li>This part was about … </li></ul><ul><li>First, ….. Next, …. Then, … </li></ul><ul><li>This story takes place in … </li></ul><ul><li>The main characters are … </li></ul><ul><li>The problem of the story is … </li></ul>
  7. 7.

  8. 8. The Clarifier <ul><li>You must clarify whenever you: </li></ul><ul><li>Read a word you don’t understand. </li></ul><ul><li>Find that sentence doesn’t make sense. </li></ul><ul><li>Are confused by what you have read. </li></ul><ul><li>Think about what you did to help you understand. </li></ul><ul><li>Explain that to the group and tell them what you think it means. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Things the clarifier can do: <ul><li>Stop and think about what you have already read. </li></ul><ul><li>Reread. </li></ul><ul><li>Adjust your reading rate: slow down or speed up. </li></ul><ul><li>Try and connect the text to something you read in another book, what you know about the world, or to something you have experienced. </li></ul><ul><li>Make visual images. </li></ul><ul><li>Reflect on what you have read. </li></ul><ul><li>Use print conventions (key words, bold print, italicized words, and punctuation). </li></ul><ul><li>Look for little words inside big words. </li></ul><ul><li>Look for base or root words, prefixes, or suffixes. </li></ul><ul><li>Look for a comma following an unfamiliar word. Sometimes the author will give the definition after the comma. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep reading to see if you can get a sense of the definition. </li></ul>
