Twenty-four resource room teachers were trained in either teaching Question-Answer Relationships (QARs) or traditional methods of reading comprehension instruction, including literal questions, locating supporting details, and drawing conclusions. Results indicated that QARs readily accommodated to content area reading material and elevated students' question recognition and location performance. (Author/JDD)
