Making Reading Relevant – Chapter One Assignment / Part One

Read Chapter One in your book (pp. 1-22). Read it as you would if you knew you were  being quizzed on it on Monday. Depending on your approach to such an assignment, complete one of the following:

1) If you have a step-by-step process for doing this type of reading, explain it. As you read, pay attention to anything you do to help you figure out what to focus on, and note whatever strategies you use. Consider whether you do anything before, during or after you read to make it easier to remember important information for the quiz. Keep a list of any steps you take throughout the process of reading the chapter. Write this on a sheet to turn in.

2) If you don’t take any steps, be honest about that. In that case, write a brief paragraph explaining your approach or lack of one. Do you realize it might help to do something rather than nothing? If so, why don’t you? Have you tried and not succeeded in the past? Do you not know what you should do? Are you not convinced that it’s worth it? Explain.
