A Strategy for Reading Independently.
Miller, Phyllis A.
Since high school and college students are often assigned research papers which require extensive reading, they would benefit by using a specific strategy which helps them in applying information-search skills, reading skills, and cognitive processes. Such a strategy assumes that it is the organization of ideas from several sources which produces integration in learning and that the quality of the student's written or oral output is influenced by the way in which the reading task is carried out. An effective strategy involves five time-management principles to assure that the task is manageable and three general skill or process areas--search skills, flexible reading skills, and idea integration. Following this strategy makes the task possible and interesting, provides internal reinforcement, takes fallible memory into account, gives a structure for skill use, and produces a final report of better quality. (A chart of the strategy is included.) (JM)
