Question-Answer Relationship (QAR)
• QAR is a strategy to be used after students have read a lesson, or a storybook.
• This strategy teaches students how to evaluate what types of questions they are being asked and where to find the answers to them.
• Four types of questions are examined in the QAR. They include:
• Right There Questions: Literal questions whose answers can be found in the story. Often the words used in the questions are the same words found in the story.
• Think and Search Questions: Answers are gathered from several parts of the story and put together to make meaning.
• Author and You: These questions are based on information provided in the story but students are required to relate it to their own
experiences. Although the answer does not lie directly in the story, students must have read it in order to answer the questions.
• On My Own: These questions do not require students to have read the passage but they must use their background or prior knowledge to answer the questions.
