Steps to Reading Responses


READING RESPONSES 

1.    T.T.Q.A . - TURN THE QUESTION AROUND  but don’t put the answer in the first sentence

         TTQA  : The Yang family is struggling financially in the United States for two reasons.

2.  ANSWER THE QUESTION

Example: First, the mother is having difficulty finding a job because there are no pianist jobs available.  Second,the father can’t find a permanent job as a violinist.    


3.  SUPPORT YOUR ANSWER WITH A DIRECT QUOTE:

Example:  As the author said on page 6, paragraph 2, “he gets to play only when one of the other violinists is absent.”

4.  INCLUDE YOUR  OPINION:

Example:  In my opinion, I think this is very realistic because many people today are having trouble finding a job.  I think musician jobs would be especially hard to get because so few are available.


5.  CONCLUDING SENTENCE: 

Example:  The Yangs  will have to carefully manage their money.
