Reading has always been one of my favorite hobbies. However, reading for college courses can be a little more difficult than sitting back and enjoying a good Nora Roberts novel. Before I took CU1010, whenever I read for college I just read the material and put it down. The information would generally stick with me since I have been so used to reading all of my life. However, I would forget tiny little details that were necessary for my knowledge and that was not okay. Therefore, I wanted to produce an exhibit that tests my reading skills. The main objective of this experiment is to verify which reading method works best for me and helps me retain the most of the material.
- First, I am going to read a chapter of Working Toward Excellence that I have already read. I will read the chapter only and set the book down. Then, I am going to try and recall the main ideas of that chapter. After I have done that, I am going to go through the chapter again to verify if I recalled all of the main ideas and record my progress.
- Then, I am going to read another chapter of Working Toward Excellence that I have already read. However, this time I am going to highlight the text and make any comments/connections regarding ideas I have. After I have done that, I will try to recall all of the main ideas in the chapter. And once more, I will go back through the chapter to verify if I had recalled all of the main ideas and record my progress.
