This practical K-12 teacher resource explains the whats, whys, and how-to's of using Questioning the Author (QtA), a powerful approach for enhancing reading comprehension and engagement.

Thorough yet concise, the book shows how to plan lessons using both narrative and expository texts, formulate open-ended Queries, and guide class discussions around them. The authors discuss how QtA has evolved over many years of classroom application and include innovative ideas for integrating vocabulary instruction and writing prompts into QtA lessons. Also provided are steps for gradually transitioning from teacher-led instruction to independent reading.

The book features extended examples of teachers implementing QtA, as well as four complete texts that can be downloaded and printed for classroom use.
Industry Reviews

"The pioneering developers of QtA have examined the research, observed classroom discussions, and talked with teachers using QtA to further develop their effective approach. They have expanded QtA to include vocabulary and writing components along with text discussion. In particular, I am impressed with the numerous examples of QtA in action. Bravo!"

—Timothy Rasinski, PhD, Professor of Literacy Education, and Rebecca Tolle and Burton W. Gorman Chair in Educational Leadership, Kent State University

"A gem. Beck, McKeown, and Sandora synthesize decades of research and insight to show how teachers can effectively and authentically teach comprehension alongside vocabulary in any genre, subject, or grade level."

—Jon Gustafson, MA, sixth-grade teacher, Columbia Heights Public Schools, Minnesota
