2 thoughts on “Easy PQA”

  1. Is it “OK” to break up the reading of the novel with PQA? I just started my novel with the intention of going through the whole chapter so as not to disrupt the flow of the plot. I do ask some basic comprehension questions at the end, and throw in some personalized questions based on the answers to the questions, but I suppose that’s not traditional PQA. Am I doing something “wrong” with this approach?

  2. Nothing is ever wrong, of course, as long as it is comprehension based. I do think I understand your question and my answer here, remember, is just my opinion.

    I was talking about the movie reading in English, and how much fun it is to give the kids’ brains a break and make them into characters from the text and just do PQA with the character, not the real kid.

    It is easier than real PQA, if I can use that term. This kind of “easy” PQA makes the kids really pay attention bc at any moment they know that you might bust out of L1 into some real neat (not too lengthy) PQA based on the content of the novel concerning their character. This kind of easy PQA is really powerful – the kid is the character and has to know what is going on.

    Certainly there is no need to plow through to the end of the chapter – just go with the natural flow of things and respond to those inner prompts during the movie reading as to when to start playing in L2 for awhile.

    It’s not called the Natural Approach for nothing. We can define that word natural as we wish, of course, but, in my view, Krashen is on one level not trying to do anything more complex via his hypotheses than just teach us how to relax and enjoy our teaching. That, at least, is one of my own interpretations of his work. You read in L1, they get glued to the movie screen thus created, and then they become the movie as well when you launch into a short easy PQA discussion with them/their character.

    Pls. let me know if that is not clear, Allison.
