QUESTION  - Ask questions that come to mind when you read.
PREDICT - Use what has happened so far to make reasonable guesses about what might happen next.
CLARIFY - Clear up confusion and answer questions.
SUMMARIZE - Review what has happened so far.
EVALUATE - Use your common sense and the evidence in the selection to arrive at sound opinions and valid conclusions.
CONNECT - Compare the text with something in your own experience, with another text, or with ideas within the text.
