Anderson, Thomas H.
The process of studying text material is a criteria-related, self-directed form of reading involving three phases: prereading, reading, and postreading. Prereading consists of clarifying the criteria for study, constructing a study guide, and surveying the text to determine how much is already known, how interesting it is, and how difficult or time consuming it will be to learn what needs to be known. The reading phase includes extended reading, monitoring understanding of text meaning, and remediating important comprehension failures as they occur. Postreading activities augment what has already been learned and generate useful alternative texts, such as notes and outlines. Mapping can be part of this final stage and involves an elaborate outlining system which juxtaposes related ideas and indicates the nature of their relationship by a symbol system. (TJ)
