Improving your reading skills

An online degree student needs to excel writing and reading. A good reader does as many of the following as possible:

   Seizes the main ideas

   Thinks about what the author is saying

   Is active not passive

   Concentrates on what is being read

   Remembers as much as possible

Think about the subject you are going to read about.

   What do you know about this subject?

   What do you want to learn about this subject?

   After you read, what have you learned about this subject?

Skim the section you are going to read.

   Do you see anything familiar?

   Do you see anything new?

   What is your overall impression?

Read for comprehension. Make a note of important parts.

   Use a post-it note or an index card and write down important main ideas and vocabulary. This will help you review what you have read.

   Stop and re-read ideas that you are not sure you understand.

   Think of where else you might find more information about the same topic. "I bet there would be something in my history book about this, too."

Recall to yourself what you have just read

   Stop occasionally as you are reading and put into your own words what you have just read.

   At the end of a chapter, recall what the main points were.

   Discuss what you have read with another student or with your teacher. This will help you clarify your thinking.
