  • #3 The brain is SOCIAL and requires interaction to develop properly.

    • Don’t lock yourself in your dorm all night to study!

    • Can you teach something to a friend and then have them explain it to you? If you have to teach something, you really learn it!

How to read your textbook

How to read your textbook

  • Survey the chapter:

    • Look at the titles, heading, subheadings

    • What are you reading for?

    • What questions have you been asked on your study guide?


How to read your textbook1

How to read your textbook

  • Question:

    • Ask yourself, “What do I already know about this subject?”

    • Read questions at the end of the chapter and make sure that you can answer them.


How to read your textbook2

How to read your textbook

  • Read:

    • Look for answers

    • Read captions under pictures and graphs and charts and data

    • Reduce your speed for difficult passages

    • Look up words that you don’t know

      • **BUILD YOUR SAT VOCABULARY!!!***

    • Only read one section at a time and make sure you understand what you are reading


How to read your textbook3

  • Recite

    • Orally ask yourself questions about what you have read

    • Take notes from the book in your own words

How to read your textbook4

How to read your textbook

  • Review

    • If you don’t understand something, make a question so you can ask your teacher in class.

    • Can you answer the question on the study guide without looking at the answer you have written?

    • Use connecting maps (especially with people or events in history)


Why should you take notes

Why should you take notes?

To minimize your “rate of forgetting”

Dr. Walter Pauk, Cornell University

Don’t take notes = Forget 60% in 14 days

Take some notes = Remember 60%

Take organized notes and do something

with them = Remember 90-100% indefinitely!

“Remember, the questioner is the learner.”

Dr. Walter Pauk – Director, Reading and Study Center – Cornell University


The forgetting curve

What does the research show

What Does the Research Show?

  • Verbatim note-taking is, perhaps, the least effective way to take notes.

  • Notes should be considered a work in progress.

  • Notes should be used as study guides for tests.

  • The more notes that are taken, the better.

    Marzano, et al. Classroom Instruction that Works. 2001.


What does the research show1

What Does the Research Show?

  • Students must analyze information at a deep level in order to decide what information to delete, what to substitute, and what to keep when they are asked to give a summary.(Anderson, V., & Hidi, 1988/1989; Hidi & Anderson, 1987)


What does the research show2

What Does the Research Show?

  • Reading comprehension increases when students learn how to incorporate “summary frames” as a tool for summarizing.(Meyer & Freedle, 1984)

    Summary frames are a series of questions created by the teacher and designed to highlight critical passages of text. When students use this strategy, they are better able to understand what they are reading, identify key information, and provide a summary that helps them retain the information.(Armbruster, Anderson, & Ostertag, 1987)


What does the research show3

What Does the Research Show?

  • When students review and revise their own notes, the notes become more meaningful and useful.(Anderson & Armbruster, 1986; Denner 1986; Einstein, Morris & Smith, 1985)
