3 How do you read research literature? Williams (2005) offers a systematic guide for reading research literature based on various older guides such as – Survey, question, read, recall, review (SQ3R) – Preview, question, read, reflect, recite, review (PQ4R) – scan for Facts, Ask questions, Identify details are major or minor, Read the work as a whole, Evaluate comprehension, Review by summarizing subheadings (FAIRER) Williams (2005)

4 Williams’ Guide (SQ6R) Survey Question Read Reflect Review Rehash Rethink Reevaluate Williams (2005)

5 Before you start to read Survey – List the title of the article – Read the summary or abstract near the title ( if available) – Scan the headings Question – Write one sentence identifying what you think the article will be about – Why is this topic important? – How or when might you personally use this information? Williams (2005)

6 Reading the article Read – Read the article – Create a summary using bullets under each heading (note: PowerPoint is good for this!) – Write a one sentence summary of each section – Make a vocabulary list of unknown terms and look up their definitions – Summarize any supplemental text (e.g. graphs, tables, sidebar, appendix, etc.) Williams (2005)

7 The Five Re’s Reflect – Stop analyzing for now – Think about the topic as a whole for at least 24 hours Review – Review the headings, bullet summary, and section summaries – Take another look at the tables and diagrams. How significant are they? Williams (2005)

8 The Five Re’s (2) Rehash – Share your interpretations, summaries, and opinions with a learning team – Actively listen to peer opinions Rethink – Ponder others’ points of view. Do a one page reflection on this. Reevaluate – Edit your headings, bullet points, one sentence summaries as needed – Develop a “plan of action” for using the information Williams (2005)
