Secondary Reading: Guiding Pupils Toward Independence in Study.
Shepherd, David L.
Secondary school students must gain increasing independence in the reading study skills in order to meet the requirements of current subject demands. Many students do not know how to apply the study skills effectively. Nor do these skills seem to be taught, and the students do not seem to acquire competency by instinct. When providing the students with instruction in the study skills, the teacher must emphasize techniques for attacking an assignment effectively, and the teacher's own classroom procedure should exemplify the techniques to be used. The teacher can do four things with the students. First, an overview of the material should be given to denote the author's treatment. Second, the students' backgrounds should be expanded and filled in as necessary. Third, basic conceptual terms should be noted and clarified. And fourth, the students should be directed to read for specific purposes. The students should understand this procedure and incorporate it into their own habits of study. They should also learn to implement the Survey-Question-Read-Recite-Review (SQ3R) study formula and to see the similarities between the formula and the teacher's classroom technique.
