Personal Reading Procedure By; Jacob Swartzendruber
Critical Thinking As you read make sure you are critically thinking. You should think which information is important and which is not so much. When you review critical thinking is also important because it can help you decide which information to study. It can also help you highlight and what to put on flash cards. You should think beyond the page and how the reading relates to your life or other things you have read.
Before you read Read section titles Read study questions Come up with questions as you read Break up reading pages into chunks Spread out reading time Study vocabulary
When you read section titles you should look for bolded words at the top of each section. When you read you can ask questions about the text or characters If you study vocab words study the highlighted or bolded words, they are very important Make sure to spread out reading time so you have plenty of time to soak it all in
As you read Highlight important dates or phrases Write down questions you have about the text Don’t take notes while reading Read at least one paragraph before taking notes so you know what information is important. After you have read entire section go back and answer questions you wrote. Read out loud Take notes Make flash cards
When you highlight important information make sure not to highlight everything only highlight short phrases or definitions. The reason not to take notes when you read is so you know which information is important. Reading out load helps you comprehend what you are reading. As you read make and study vocab cards to help you learn important information.
Review Review what you have read after each section Write a summary of what you have read If you have any questions about the text ask a teacher Make connections from what you have read with past experiences
Being an Active Reader When you read you should stay active with your reading. It doesn’t matter if your previewing, reading or reviewing you should stay active in what your reading. Some ways you can stay active are asking questions and finding answers. You can also make flash cards to help you review. Another way is just skimming through what you have read.
When you read you should put yourself in place of each of the reader roles!
Reading Roles Connector- find connections between what you are reading and yourself. Questioner-write down a few questions about what you are reading. Illustrator-make pictures in your mind of what you are reading. Literary, Luminary-think about special sections in the text.
Reading Procedures for different Learning Styles Visual - draw pictures of what you’ve read, make collages, study charts and graphs, or come up with a game to help you study. Kinesthetic - make scale models of what you are talking about, draw a picture or make charts and graphs. Pass a ball around while you review. Interpersonal - have group discussions, make a class project, and ask each other questions. Auditory - read out loud, have group discussions, listen to books on tape, study with a partner.
My Personal Reading Procedures Preview- Before I read I like to preview what I am reading, here are some things I do. I like to skim over what I am reading and pick out important information. I also like to study charts and graphs. As I read-I take notes about important information, I also make inferences while I read about what's going on and I ask questions about the text. Review- When I review I review vocabulary words, I look at the headings and I study charts and graphs.
