Question-Answer relationships (QAR) is a powerful
strategy to boost comprehension.
When learners are taught with the QAR comprehension method, they are able to answer questions related to what they have read more accurately.
The strategy gives a strong foundation for identifying the topic, the main idea and the supporting ideas of a text accurately.
