Reading Guides and Viewing Guides are useful for K-12 and university-level instructors. The guides provide direction for students as they read a text or view a film. Instructors might also draw from the guides to craft questions for discussions, papers, quizzes, or exams.

 

The guides provided here consist of 4 types of questions. The first are recall questions, which require students to recall specific facts from the text or film. Recall questions support students in their efforts to be more focused and attentive when consuming media. The second are recall questions, which require students to demonstrate an understanding of key terms used in the text or film. Vocabulary questions support students in their efforts to understand the media with greater precision. The third are reflection questions, which require students to make intratextual connections within the text. The fourth are extension questions, which require students to make intertextual connections between the subject texts and outside texts. Both reflection questions and extension questions support students in their efforts to draw conclusions about the meaning and veracity of the text.
