Purpose:  To help students develop a study strategy to help read and remember content area reading assignments.

Rationale:  When students apply strategies to reading, they retain more information.


1.  SURVEY-- Students preview the reading assignments, noting heading and skimming introduction and the summary.

2.  QUESTION-- Turn in heading into a question before reading the section.

3.  READ--  The students then read each section so they many learn the answer to the question they are asking.

4.  RECITE--  After reading each section, the students should answer the question posed from memory.

5.  REVIEW-- After finishing the entire assignment, review each question from memory.

Strengths:  Effective when applied correctly.

Weaknesses:  Time consuming.
