Question Type Strategy Right There! Skim & Scan for a particular fact & look for an answer in the same words as the text. In Other Words… Skim & Scan for the reference & then look for an answer stated in different words from the text. This type of question tests your comprehension and ability to “paraphrase” (summarize) what you have read. Up Here! Just use your brain. No need to go back to the text. Look at big idea places: What’s the Big idea… Read All! 1. Title 2. 1st paragraph 3. last paragraph No shortcuts! Read the whole text, from beginning to end!
