Planning your reading session can improve your reading efficiency by preventing distraction and burnout.
This strategy will ensure that you acquire relevant knowledge as you read a textbook or journal article.
Summarizing content in your own words ensures that you have understood the text and helps you remember what you’ve read.
Taking notes that are tailored to your assignment will save you time and effort.
Creating a key of symbols for annotating can help you make meaningful annotations that you can reference in the future.
Figuring out what information you need from a reading is an important first step! It can help you know when to speed up and when to slow down and dive deeper into the reading.
Designate a symbol, highlighter color, or other marker that you can use to make note of bits of text that you don’t understand or want more clarification on.
