Ask & Answer Questions

Ask and Answer questions encourage students to formulate questions throughout the reading process.  Research indicates that prompting students to consider questions before, during, and after reading keeps them more engaged and promotes comprehension.  (Miller & Veatch, 2011 p. 81).  These strategies can be easily applied to choral texts.
