Guided Reading Questioning Framework

We aware of an issue affecting users running iOS 7. We have submitted an update to Apple to fix this. In the meantime, upgrading your device to iOS 8 will fix the issue!! We apologise for the inconvenience – our developer has been suitably punished!

The ‘Guided Reading Questioning Framework’ (Narrative Texts) is Alan Peat Ltd’s first reading app. It has been designed to help busy teachers to structure their text-based questioning in ten key areas: knowledge, prediction, comprehension, application, analysis, speculation, empathic response, synthesis, evaluation and elaboration.
Each ‘area’ is treated as a questioning outcome and is comprised of a series of questions – these are framed in a lower order, middle order and higher order manner. As such the content of the app represents a differentiated (critical thinking) developmental continuum of questions.

The app is easy to use and will help to avoid ad hoc and/or repetitive questioning in guided reading sessions. Each ‘area’ includes a note-taking section. Notes are saved ‘in app’ but can also be backed-up using Dropbox. Further questions designed by staff and/or clusters of schools can therefore be added, making this an ever-expanding resource.
A ‘must-have’ app for all schools and the first in a series of apps to support the development of reading in schools.
