SIM Virtual Professional Learning: The Self-Questioning Strategy

Jan. 8 & 15, 2022

Presenters: Rosanne Arvin & Bonnie Palasak


The Self-Questioning Strategy helps students create their own motivation for reading. Students create questions in their minds, predict the answers to those questions, search for the answers to those questions as they read, and paraphrase the answers to themselves.

In research studies, students showed average gains of 40 percentage points in reading comprehension of grade-level materials after they learned the strategy.

Participants will receive the following materials as part of their registration: The Self-Questioning guidebook and access to digital teacher resources. 

Registration Deadline, Dec. 20, 2022

Early Bird Price: $350 ($375, after Dec. 8, 2021)

Early Bird Bulk Rates Available (before Dec. 8, 2021): $325 6-10 people, $300 11+ people
