Discussion Board: Reading Difficult Material

After reviewing the study strategies about reading difficult material, engage in a discussion with your classmates about reading strategies.

Directions

  1. Review the material in the Study Guides and Strategies for Reading Difficult Material page.
  2. Develop first in a new Google Doc a discussion post that addresses:

    • the ways the reading strategies you have used before worked for you and/or didn’t work for you,
    • which new reading strategies you learned about that you might use to help you understand difficult text,
    • why you think the new strategy will assist you,
    • which reading strategies you learned about that you might recommend to a friend, and
    • how you might change a reading strategy you learned about to better fit your needs.


  3. Copy and paste your post in the discussion.
  4. Review your classmates' posts.
  5. Respond to your classmates' posts about the strategies they found useful and whether or not you might use those strategies to understand difficult material.
