Question Answer Relationships (QAR) was developed by Taffy Raphael to help students learn how to answer questions based on what is actually found in the text as well as using their own background knowledge.
The QAR routine can visibly show students the relationships between questions and answers and that the answers (and where the answers can be found!) are related to the type of question being asked.
QAR can also be used with websites and media formats.
