(Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Review)

1. You can survey, or preview, material by looking at the titles, main headings, and sub-headings. These are usually in heavy, black print.
2. Read carefully captions under pictures, maps, and graphs.
3. Some authors provide a summary or an introduction to the chapters. Read carefully.

1. As you survey, write down questions that are suggested to you.
2. Study the questions that may be provided in the material. These may be found at the end of each section or at the end of the chapter.

1. Use your reading finger. You will then read accurately.
2. Pay attention to what you read.
3.Do not skip over words you do not understand. Read OUT LOUD long words that you must break into word family sounds. This will help you to be sure you read all words correctly.
4.Definitions are important. Be sure you know the meanings of words that are used frequently and those that may be in a word list at the end of the chapter.
5.In reading, you look for answers to the questions in the text or those you made up for the step above.

1.After you read each paragraph of a lesson, you should say OUT LOUD in your own words what the paragraph is about.
2.Use the memory board to trace words that are important and must be remembered. These will be names that begin with capital letters, dates that are given in numerals and words that are used in italics or heavy print. Go over these until you remember them.

1. Go over again the important facts learned from the lesson.
2. Be sure you know the meanings of important words.
