PQA Tip

It would probably be a good thing to check the phrases that go with the story before class. Think about which one(s) could lend themselves to PQA. Like today, the simple phrase “after school” turned out in one of my classes to be an entire story.  Certain phrases (structures) lend themselves to PQA in wonderful ways, others suck, and it is good to start each class with an awareness of which ones could lead to a good class. Another thing is to see if there might be any possible links between two or even all three of the target structures. You might be able to mix them together in each question you ask the class. Remember, the purpose of PQA is to get as many repetitions on each target structure to set up the story.
