READING SKILLS

READING AND NOTE TAKING TECHNIQUES

Welcome to the optional reading and note taking activity

 

To complete this activity

Step 1:  Watch the video about the SQ3R reading technique.

Step 2: Follow the link Reading Techniques  to read the advice on 'reading techniques' and watch the videos.

Step 3: Try out the SQ3R method and at least one other reading technique with some of your course reading. If you haven't got access to your course reading list yet, just choose a non-fiction book relating to your subject to practice on.

Step 4: Following this practice, reflect on how useful you found the techniques.  If they help, keep on using them.  If not, research other reading techniques which may be helpful to you. 

Step 5: Following a few months of practising these techniques, reflect on how you have found using them and provide a summary on the next page.
