not only what to study...
Patricia Mulcany-Ent
With this quote in mind, I seek to present students with methods to assist them with:

Active engagement
Text comprehension
Information acquisition
In this presentation the following active reading strategies will be visited:

Think Pair Share
The Brain Dump Strategy

Transitional Studies Students

Unprepared for college expectations
The instructor will have the session's objectives and key terms projected or written on the board when students enter.
After reading the board, students are instructed to complete the K & W sections
Students will then participate in an audio visual supported interactive lecture and complete the Learned section
Students will submit their KWL charts as an exit slip at the end of class

Brain Dump Definition:
Transfer of accessible knowledge about a subject from the brain to some other storage medium (in this case a sheet of paper)

At the end of class students are to complete a brain dump exit slip to sum up that session's learning experience

After receiving a test students will quickly write relevant information (as the brain dumps it) on the given test
This can serve as a reference during the test
In conclusion: 4 of the strategies I use for active reading are:
