Ch 5-8: Using CQs to clarify what you've read
You will review the characteristics of CQs and use them to help you remember what you read in chapters 5-8.
Reading Strategy: Clarifying with CQs
To help us clarify what is confusing and expand our understanding of big ideas, we need to ask a clarifying question (CQ) that clears up confusion. Now, don't get lost in all these EQ/CQ names. Just remember that ANY QUESTION that requires you to dig further for the answer is "essential"; but to "clarify" or confirm an answer takes a special kind of EQ that "guides" you to what you want to know.
Let's use the checklist from the last lesson to see how CQs match up with "EQs that Guide."
Notice CQs are nearly identical to an "EQ that Guides" except they CAN be answered with a short answer or yes/no.
This is because CQs can confirm we DO know something, or they can clear up what we DON'T know.
In addition, CQs are a great way to practice being an independent learner because their answers can be found in typical places. Follow the simple guideline in yellow when answering a CQ.
