Applying Question-Answer Relationships to Pictures
In this multisession lesson designed for struggling readers, students are guided through a viewing of David Wiesner's Tuesday , a wordless picture book. As students view the images, they are asked four different types of questions about the pictures. The questions range in difficulty from those with answers that can be found in the text to those that require inferences. Students learn to categorize questions by the four question types and use pictures to help them better understand a story.
During this lesson students will use their imaginations and writing skills to write a story from a wordless picture book, Tuesday , by David Wiesner. They will work in pairs and write text to go along with the pictures. They will also view a website to learn facts about frogs.
