  • 4. Stopping pointAt the given stopping point, the Summarizer willhighlight the key ideas up to this point in thereading.
  • 5. QuestionerQuestioner will then pose questions about theselection:• The unclear parts• puzzling information• connections to other concepts already learned• motivations of the agents or actors or characters• etc.
  • 6. Clarifier• addresses confusing parts and attempts to answer the questions that were just posed.
  • 7. The Predictoroffers guesses about what the author will tellthe group next or, if its a literary selection, thepredictor might suggest what the next events inthe story will be.
  • 8. Switch RolesSwitch one person to the right, and the nextselection is read. Students repeat the processusing their new roles. This continues until theentire selection is read.
