Getting A.C.T.I.V.E Reading Strategies for Maxwell Middle School Getting A.C.T.I.V.E What Good Readers Do A = Ask C = Connect I = Inference T = Track Down E = Eureka V = Visualize The Process of Elimination SQ3R What Good Readers Do Before Reading:
1. Set a Purpose for Reading
2. Preview the Text
3. Activate Background Knowledge
4. Predict

During Reading:
5. Cross-check
6. Reread
7. Predict and Confirm
8. Skip, Read On, and Go Back
9. Connect Background Knowledge to the Information in the Text
10. Think About Explicit and Implicit Information
11. Stop and Review After Reading:
12. Retell and Summarize
13. Use a Graphic Organizer
14. Draw Conclusions
15. Reread
16. Discuss and Respond
17. Write to Support Understanding SQ3R SQ3R is a 5 stage active reading technique.
The stages are:

1. Survey - Scan the contents.
2. Question - Make a note of any questions that come to mind
3. Read - Read the document and take notes (highlight and underline key information)
4. Review - Reread the document, expand your notes, or discuss the passage. 5. Recall - Run through the facts and significant information The Process of Elimination After you have been through all of the
questions once, go back and find questions
you have some knowledge about and
eliminate choices that you know are

If you can eliminate two wrong answers,
your chance of choosing the right answer
is greater. Ask Q.A.R. = Question, Answer, Response

1. Literal Question: Right There! Fact-based questions (who, what, when, where, why, and how).
2. Interpretive Question: Think and Search! Possibly more than one question. Answers are supported by textual Evidence.
3. Evaluative Question: Author and You! Asks for an opinion, belief, or a point of view. Answers are supported by textual Evidence.
4. Universal Question: On Your Own! Open-ended questions based on ideas in the text and other connections. C = Connect There are five types of connections you can make with a piece of text:
1. Text to Self happens when you connect what you are reading to an experience you have had.
2. Text to Text happens when you can see how two books or readings relate to each other.
3. Text to World happens when you can connect what you have read with some fact or piece of information that you know about the world.
4. Text to People happens when you can connect what you have read to other people and their personal situations
5. Text to History happens when you connect what you are reading to a specific historical event. T = Track Down I = Inference V = Visualize E = Eureka! Track down and/or identify what is
interesting versus what is important. Interesting Important "Reading Between the Lines"

You are inferring when you find yourself responding to what you read in these ways:
"I think..."
"Maybe it means..."
"I'm guessing that..."
"I predict..."
Complex Inference - goes beyond the explicit text. A complex inference can be a subtle inference.
Subtle Inference - one in which the bits of information are not as easily connected.
Generalization - a conclusion about a group of persons, places, or things
Drawing conclusions - a form of inference in which the reader gathers information, and comes to a conclusion based on the general thoughts or ideas that emerge.
Inductive reasoning - the process of determination general principles by logic or observation from specific details and reasoning.
Deductive reasoning - the process of logical/rational reasoning based on the assumed truth of the principle. Background
Knowledge Context
Clues INFERENCE Sometimes it's easier to respond to what you read in visual/symbolic ways:
"I get a picture in my mind..."
"I can see..."
"It's like a movie in my head..."

Watch for portions of the text where you can get a clear picture in your mind that enhances your understanding of the text. Think outside the box! Be Creative! Celebrate Your Accomplishments! Reading Strategy Foldable
