1. Preview the chapter/passage. Read/review title, abstract, section headings, key term definitions. Look at charts, maps, graphs, and study guide. Access prior knowledge. Divide chapter/supplementary material into sections (length depends on difficulty of text). 2. Ask-Read-Check each section. Ask a question for the section you are about to read. The question(s) should anticipate what you think will be answered in that section and use words like who, what, where, when, why, and how. Read the section. Look for answer(s) to the section’s question(s), but be alert for unanticipated information, too. Check your understanding of the section. Recite answer(s) to the question(s) you asked. Note additional information not anticipated by your pre-formulated questions. Mark your book. Read first, highlight later. Develop a regular marking approach. Mark only essential ideas.
