Step 1A Lesson by Faolan
"Hello, teacher? Are you seriously giving this to me?"
"Um. . . yeah. . ."
"What is this thing, anyway?"
If you are begging me to stop, I feel your pain. Funny, eh? No way, Faolan! Anway, who knows RATE? RATE is basically a way to quiz yourself and ask questions about the story. Below, I will show you what each letter means:
R and A: Restate and answer
T: Text support
S (additional): Self support
Anyway, what do these mean? Well, Restate and Answer is easy.You simply restate while answering. Here is a example:
R and A: The leopard struggled in the winter because it was cold and he wasn't used to the weather.
Get it? Its pretty easy. Now, onto the Text Support:
Text Support: On page 167, it says, "The leopard struggled. It was freezing outside. He wasn't used to this weather."
The Explain part is a little hard, but it won't kill you:
Explain: That means that it was freezing outside, and the leopard wasn't used to the weather at all.
A lot of people get the Self Support wrong. It isn't mandatory, but it is usually required:
Self Support: I wasn't ready for the cold weather in Canada because I always used to live in Hawaii. (lucky!!!)
It may be a bit difficult, but when you learn it correctly, you will be a wiz at doing this. After you finish reading a book, maybe you can ask yourself questions like: Why was [this happening or whatever?]
Anyway, I will make a next lesson shortly. Thanks!!
