  7. Method #1 • The RAP strategy • Good for textbook explanations and research articles • Read (a paragraph or a section) • Ask yourself some questions about what you have just read • Put the answers in your own words (and make notes if you need) http://owll.massey.ac.nz/study-skills/in-depth-reading.php

  8. Method #2 • The RIDA strategy • Relates to descriptive and narrative texts • Read • Imagine the scene you have just read about • Describe it to yourself • Add more detail as you read http://owll.massey.ac.nz/study-skills/in-depth-reading.php

  9. Method #3 • The Five S method • Reminds students to use the appropriate reading style • Skim: • Read the introduction, summary and first and last sentences of each paragraph. • Scan: • Where is the information on …? • Select: • Do you need to read all this chapter? Select sections that you need to know more about. • Slurp: • Read in-depth and more slowly selected sections. Can you tell yourself about this concept now? Read again if necessary. • Summarize: • Use a map, keywords, index cards, or questions as a framework for some notes. Take no more than 10 minutes. http://owll.massey.ac.nz/study-skills/in-depth-reading.php

  10. Method #4 • SQ3R • Survey: • Skim through the material • Question: • Ask questions about the material • Read: • Read the material in-depth • Recite: • Make notes from memory • Review: • Check your recalled notes http://owll.massey.ac.nz/study-skills/in-depth-reading.php
