Textbook Reading Strategies
Choose the one that best fits your Learning Style!
- Read out loud
- Reading while walking back and forth in your room (warning: remove coffee table)
- Jot symbols next to stuff that sticks out. For example…
* - important
“?” - I don't understand, ask prof/classmate
:-) - This is interesting!
@ - Whoa! This is relevant to my life!
If after you read these strategies, you're saying to yourself, “Yeah, that’d be great – if I had TIME to do all that!” - hey, don’t get your papers in a bunch! One of the common challenges about textbook-reading is fitting in the time to do it. May we suggest the Time Management Workshop or the Time Management section of our website?
