Strategy #42 - SQ4R Study
by Amanda Miller - Section A
Students use this strategy to better remember and comprehend their text book readings. Using this strategy helps slow students down and enable them to better recall the main ideas of a text.
Students should use this strategy when reading content-area textbooks or non-fiction works to form a mental framework of the text chapter.
- Survey - skim through chapter; look at main headings, graphics, vocab, summary
- Question - use section headings as questions and then...
- Read - read section to find the answer (purposeful reading)
- Recite - say or write 'answer' found after each section in your own words; take notes, highlight main words
- Relate - use prior knowledge about topic to connect new ideas or content
- Review - after reading whole chapter, review each section's question and answer (try without looking at notes)
