Reading Strategies
Different types of reading situations require different types of reading strategies.
1. Reading for Research
Reading for research requires:
understanding the research question
gathering information in support of your research topic
evaluating your sources
reading for understanding
digesting the information and integrating it in your own words
2. Study Reading
To read with maximum understanding

Examples: textbooks, technical articles, and material which you read in detail and/or organize, present to others, or for which you are held responsible.
Small Group Activity
Take out "SQ3R Method of Studying" and "Acts of Reading: Making Meaning from Texts"

Get into groups of 3

Each group will be assigned a section from the reading; await further instruction

Reading is a process of constructing meaning from a written text.
It is a dynamic interaction between the reader, the reader's prior experience, and existing knowledge in the subject matter and about the world.
It involves strategies such as predicting, questionning, summarizing, determining meanings of vocabulary in context, monitoring one's own comprehension, and reflecting.
The process also involves motivation, ownership, purpose, and self-esteem.
Briefly describe your past experiences with reading and your current attitude towards reading.

What are some reading challenges you anticipate as an incoming college student?
Analyze the reading. Is it a textbook? A novel? A non-fiction essay?
Determine your purpose for reading the text.
Develop an appropriate reading plan for your reading situation.
Reading Situations
What types of reading situations do you expect to encounter in college?
1. Reading for research
2. Study reading
3. Critical, careful, and reflective reading
Research Sources
Electronic: Web sites; online articles; library databases
Broadcast media: television; radio; YouTube
Print: scholarly journals; newspapers; magazines
Skimming is a good strategy to employ when doing research.

Utilize article abstracts.

Read introductions and conclusions first.

Determine how much time you will need to read through your sources and how closely you will need to read them.
Research Reading Strategies
SURVEY: familiarizes the reader with the material in a chapter

QUESTION: formulating a question before reading encourages the reader to become more involved with the chapter

READ: reading with a specific purpose helps promote concentration

RECITE: allows the reader to assess his/her understanding

REVIEW: challenges the reader to recall the chapter's main points and comprehend the relationship between them
These five steps of the SQ3R method — when polished into a smooth and efficient process - should result in faster reading, picking out the important points, and fixing them in memory.
Preview the chapter by reading the title of the chapter, the introduction, and the final summary.

Glance over boldface headings, illustrations, and graphs.
This process acquaints the reader with chapter's main points and creates a mental map that cognitively and psychologically eases your way into the reading assignment.
Turn the heading of a chapter section into a question; be conscientious and specific.
Questioning brings to mind information you already know, thus helping you understand that section more quickly.
Read the section with the purpose of finding an answer to the question you formulated.

Read for the main points.

Effectively annotate your text by marking it up as you read: note the key ideas, supporting points, and any questions that occur to you.
Having read the section, try to recite the answer to your question.

Use your own words and keep your answer brief; cite an example.
Practice the information by saying it out loud or by writing it on a piece of paper.
After the chapter has been read in this way, look over your notes to get an overview of the main points and their relationships.

Review the chapter by rereading the headings and answering the questions you made for each heading.

Summarize the chapter's main points in your own words.

Review your notes once or twice per week.
