For children, questioning the world around them comes natural. As readers, this skill is tremendously important because questioning deepens the comprehension of what is read. Through a series of lessons, Debbie Miller helps all readers understand the magnitude of generating questions, finding answers, and using various resources to think deeply about literature. Miller finds that there are four parts to questioning as readers. The first deals with the purpose and moments to inquire. Part two is learning about where and how to find answers to the questions. The third part gets students working together as a community of learners, while the fourth has students understanding that questioning is not just reserved for reading, it is all around us.
