Text-Book Reading Strategy

The following slides include 7 pages scanned from an 8th-grade science text-book. Follow these simple steps to practice an easy strategy for reading text-books:

1. Read the section title.

2. “Read” each picture... look at each picture, read the caption, and ask yourself, “Why do I think this picture is here?” (It should take you 3-5 minutes to “read” the pictures on these seven pages. Do NOT read any other text yet!)

3. Answer as many of the Review questions as you can at the end.

Among the most modern scientific tools are weather satellites which, among other things, can be used to track dangerous hurricanes.

When air pressure increases, the column of mercury rises in the barometer tube (right). What happens when air pressure decreases (left)?

An aneroid barometer (inset) is used to measure air pressure anywhere from your hometown to the foggy banks off Kruzof Island in Alaska.

  • 3-3 Section Review
  • What are some of the tools used to explore the Earth’s oceans, crust, and atmosphere?
  • Can a seismograph be used to predict earthquakes? Explain your answer.
  • Critical Thinking – Applying Concepts
  • 3. Using the term density, explain why air pressure is related to altitude (distance above sea level).

What Did You Think?

The information from the pictures ALONE gives you enough information to answer two of the review questions. For the third question, you may not know the exact answer, but you understand the question and know exactly where to find the information.

Your brain has now been “primed,” meaning it has some baseline knowledge for the topic. Now, as you learn new information from the black-and-white text AND class lectures, that new information will “stick” to your brain much more efficiently.

HINT: You will usually get 50-80% of the information in a text-book from the visuals (including charts and graphs). The black-and-white text simply adds more details. Even if you do not have time to read the black-and-white text, at LEAST read the visuals...you will learn more, pay better attention in class, and begin earning better grades in less time.
