Say, Man! So You Want to Know about ReQuest!
Searfoss, Lyndon W.; Dishner, Ernest K.
ReQuest is a reciprocal questioning technique in which the teacher serves as a model of questioning behavior for the student. Following a briefing period by the teacher, the activity begins with the student and teacher silently reading the first sentence of a story. Teacher and student exchange questions on a sentence-by-sentence reading of the material, until the student can make a logical prediction of what is going to happen in the rest of the story. An expanded and specific set of directions for classroom use of the ReQuest system for preservice and inservice teachers is also provided in this paper. The processes of selecting appropriate material, giving rules, directing the questioning sequence, selecting appropriate questions, eliciting predictions of story content, directing silent reading, and comparing predictions are discussed in a procedural outline.
