  41. 41. Goal Initiate discussion. Query What is the author trying to say? What is the author’s message? What is the author talking about? Focus on author’s message. That’s what the author says, but what does it mean? Why did the author choose this word? Link information. How does that connect with what the author already told us? What information has the author added here that connects or fits with _______________? Identify difficulties with the way the author has presented information or ideas. Does that make sense? Did the author state or explain that clearly? Why or why not? What do we need to figure out or find out? Did the author tell us that? Did the author give us the answer to that? Encourage students to refer to the text because they have misinterpreted, or to help them recognize that they have made an inference.
