The Question-Answer Relationship (QAR) strategy is a ‘three-way’ model which considers the relationship between questions, text content, and reader knowledge.
Therefore students who understand how questions are written are better prepared to answer questions. These activities help students to clarify the question-building process as a step toward better reading comprehension.
The QAR strategy breaks questions into two general categories; ‘In the Book’ (literal) questions and ‘In My Head’ (inferential) questions.
