When we read, it can be helpful to ask questions about a text before, during, and after reading to improve your understanding of the text. This strategy lets you think about what you already know and why you need to read something, what is going on in a reading, and what you learned from it when you are finished. Keeping track of the answers to your questions can help you remember what you've read, too. Watch the video below and review the asking questions guide. Then complete the asking questions activity.
