Three Levels of Reading Posters


Beyond the lines, between the lines and on the lines posters for the three levels of reading.

On the lines

The answer is in the text. You can point to the answer.

Key questions:

  • Who?
  • What?
  • When?
  • Where?

Between the lines

The exact answer cannot be found directly. Search for clues within the text. Interpret, reason, classify.

Key questions:

  • What is the author trying to say?
  • What does the text suggest or represent?

Beyond the lines

Make connections outside of the text. Evaluate and critique.

Key questions:

  • Why is this important?
  • What does this mean to me?
  • What does this mean to other people?
