To teach students a routine for answering reading comprehension open response (constructed response) questions.
Open Response questions, also known as Constructed Response, require students to integrate reading comprehension, organization and planning, and writing skills in order to successfully construct an answer that represents their true comprehension ability and skills.

The model is adapted to meet the needs of the school.
