For each class, students must read a wide range of materials, in both print and online formats: from their texts, to journal articles, to novels and short stories. As they read, they’ll need to read and think carefully about the concepts covered in those materials. Active-reading strategies can help them make the time they devote to their reading assignments more effective.
In Essential Study Skills, Eighth Edition, author Linda Wong defines active reading as “… the process of using effective strategies to engage working memory to achieve specific reading goals” (267). To help students put the active-reading process into action, Wong includes a checklist of active reading strategies. We’ve adapted these below. Encourage your students to adopt these strategies for reading… they’ll find that they get even more out of their study time.
