Moving Students' Questions out of the Parking Lot
Ness, Molly
Reading Teacher, v67 n5 p369-373 Feb 2014
This article provides teachers with ideas on how to address students' self-generated questions. Following a third-grade classroom, the article explores the use of a "parking lot" -- a repository for the seemingly off-task questions which curious students naturally pose. As students encounter informational text with genuine purposes, they purposefully seek out the answers to their own questions and continue to generate additional questions.
