Reading for Main Ideas and Details in Electronics.
Hunter, Charles F.
Designed to improve the reading skills of electronic students, these instructional materials include a series of reading passages taken from material actually used in an electronics course and a set of exercises dealing with reading for both main ideas and details. The exercises presented employ a variety of formats including identifying main ideas of paragraphs, answering technical questions based on reading passages, analyzing the structure of individual paragraphs, paraphrasing technical material, answering multiple choice and fill-in-the-blank-type questions on passage content, assessing the relative importance of facts presented in a given technical passage, and differentiating between general and detailed information.
