In other words: Homework is work.
Use best practices:
Survey: Read the Introduction and Conclusion. Skim the material looking for main ideas.
Question: Write down the questions you have about the chapter. What doesn’t make sense to you?
Read: Read the chapter in small chunks. Stop and think about what you’ve read in between each section.
Respond: For each section you’ve read, apply the material to your questions.
Record: Use a note-taking method to record key points.
Recite: Put what you’ve learned into your own words.
Review: Review the text and your notes one final time.
Survey –You can gain insight from an academic text before you even begin the reading assignment.
Question – During this stage, you should note any questions on the subjects contained in the document.
Read – Read each section thoroughly, keeping your questions in mind. Try to find the answers and identify if you need additional ones.
Recall/Recite – In the recall (or recite) stage, you should go through what you read and try to answer the questions you noted before. It’s worth taking the time to write a short summary, even if your instructor doesn’t require it.
Review – Reviewing all the collected information is the final step of the process. An excellent way to consolidate information is to present or teach it to someone else.
