Twelfth Night: QAR

Shakespeare's Twelfth Night is used to model for readers how to craft four levels of questions that promote comprehension. Questions that can be answered with evidence right there in the text, questions that require readers to think and search, questions that require readers to consider the author's intent, and questions that ask readers to identify with events in the text.
