So just what is BCQ...
Students will hastily begin reading a book without getting to know it first. I wanted my students to get to know the book before they began reading to help them develop a purpose and deepen their comprehension.
Before students read a book they need to familiarize themselves with the text before getting started. I call it “getting the brain ready” for the text. This strategy takes about 5 minutes but it is important for students to prepare themselves for reading.
