Reading Strategies Worksheet

Identify two reading goals, one short-term and one long-term.

• Long-term reading goal: Become proficient and efficient reader • Short-term reading goal: Determine what reading strategies work for me and which do not.

Write a 100- to 150-word response to each of the following questions:

• How do you currently approach the weekly readings in the course?

Currently my approach is a bit lazy. I will skim through each chapter and pick out the important parts. Those parts I will read, after reading a question I will go back to the reading and re read what I need to. I think I might have to reconfigure my approach and just read through the material the first time, take notes and use highlighting methods to comprehend the readings more. I find that the readings have been fairly easy so far and that may be giving me a false sense of confidence, so rather than being hit by surprise later I will be proactive and start using these methods now.

• How might you incorporate three of the suggestions covered this week into your study time?

I learned a lot about reading strategies and the best one I see that can be incorporated immediately is highlighting key sentences or phrases. I can also use the reading with concentration method, by removing myself from any and all distractions while reading I believe I will comprehend more information that I read. Last note taking and using flash cards is a quick and easy way to check my comprehension. After reading and reviewing my notes I can make flash cards to check what I learned. I believe by incorporating these simple strategies into my reading I can become a better student and achieve my goals!

• How might this plan help you accomplish your reading goals?

This plan will help me find the best practice for reading and…...

Marking: Before the course I did not marked nothing but now I try to mark the main content discussed on class or more closely related to the weekly questions. 3.

Write a 100- to 150-word response to each of the following questions: • How do you currently approach the weekly readings in the course? Currently, I approach weekly course reading material in a fairly unconventional way. My weekdays are usually incredibly hectic between my job of working with my clients and my day to day personal life with my children, so finding any quality reading time is hard during the day time hours. I generally have all reading material downloaded to my laptop in advance as we all should so I can get in a bit of reading time during my break time and my clients nap time. The problem with this is, even though it is quiet and my break time, there is still quite a bit of activity going on around me having to deal with small odds and ends, breaking any concentration I have and understanding of the text. I do get a small amount of time in peace when I get home and right before the kids get home after school in which I use to get in some reading and study time.

Use the reference to create an appropriate APA-formatted, in-text citation. Aggressive driving is characterized by the tendency to view driving as a competition rather than as a means of getting from one place to another. Although most drivers are content to move along with the flow of traffic, aggressive drivers weave from lane to lane, seeking any advantage that will place them ahead of others. Aggressive drivers are also more likely to tailgate and honk the horn in an effort to intimidate other drivers or simply to move them along faster. When confronted with heavy traffic, aggressive drivers often engage in dangerous behavior such as passing on the right, using utility or turn lanes as driving lanes, and ignoring traffic signals. Paradoxically, aggressive drivers often pride themselves on their skill. They see other, more cautious drivers as the problem, not themselves. Reference: Arlov, P. (2007).
