Reading Strategies Worksheet
Identify two reading goals, one short-term and one long-term.
• Long-term reading goal:
• Short-term reading goal:
Write a 100- to 150-word response to each of the following questions:
• How do you currently approach the weekly readings in the course?
When I approach a chapter I read the title to see what the chapter will be talking about. I read the topic “In this chapter you will explore” and the bulletins that fall under it. I read these so when I’m done reading I could go back and if there was something that I didn’t learn, I will be able to go back and read. Then, I scroll down and read all the titles and sub-titles to get a feel of what I am about to read. While I’m reading titles and sub-titles I decide what I already know and what I don’t know. Once I’m at the end if the chapter I read “Review this chapter” and if there are any questions I read them and their answers. Doing this will help me because; I will remember the questions I went over and will know the answer.
• How might you incorporate three of the suggestions covered this week into your study time?
One suggestion I could use during my study time is to find a study location where I could be free from all the noises around me. Going to a library or the campus library could help me from being distracted from questions and comments from family. If I am reading a document on the computer I could download it and disconnect from the internet to prevent me from getting on social sites. Turning off my cell phone or keeping my phone on vibrate could help me from getting distracted. I feel like the last suggestion is the one that I will use the most because I am constantly on my phone. When I am in the middle of reading a chapter I will stop what I’m doing and answer the text. By the time I’m actually done and go over the questions, I forgot everything I have read.
