• How do you currently approach the weekly readings in the course?
I approach the weekly readings with a lot of energy so that when I read the material it stays fresh in my mind. I also like to take notes as I read highlighting the main points in each paragraph. I approach my readings as if it were my job and take the information provided very seriously. I look at is as the tools to my trade and to not fully comprehend the text means that I can’t fully accomplish my goal of getting a degree.

• How might you incorporate three of the suggestions covered this week into your study time? I could incorporate some of the suggestions given to me by previewing my text. This could help tremendously because it helps you to get a view of what it is you are about to read and helps with recognizing things you already know. Another strategy is marking my textbook. This can help by letting me reference my notes rather than read through the entire material over again. One final strategy I could incorporate is readings in time blocks. This helps me to focus more on what I am reading so that I can keep the information I gain fresh in my mind.

• How might this plan help you accomplish your reading goals? This plan could help me accomplish my reading goals by helping me to focus and comprehend more. Also by increasing my reading level. This plan could help me to be more of a conscious reader and not just one who reads material and doesn’t retain any of the information. This can also be helpful by letting me skim over the text due to my note taking and

    Reflective Essay

    Throughout my first year of University, I have needed to adapt my learning style, as virtually all my learning is now done outside of lectures and seminars in the form of reading and self study. At first I struggled slightly with this but as the year has progressed I feel much more confident and at ease with this process. I found that the keeping of a reading diary really helped me keep on track with which academic texts I should be focusing on. I found I didn’t delegate enough time for academic reading, as my diary was weighted more heavily with non-academic reading. I often just concentrated on reading my primary core textbooks from my reading list, as opposed to looking at secondary texts and recommended further reading. Having recognised this, I plan to make a conscious effort to read around my subject areas more. I will also approach subjects in a more accessible way through the use of journals and articles, as I personally find the information more accessible in this medium. From my diary I was also able to see that I do the majority of my reading either on a weekend or of an evening before dinner. I often find that at these times my absorption of information is at its…

    I read the headings or subheadings of the chapters, captions underneath a picture, illustrations, examples, or any information that is bolded.

Also, I highlight any ideas, concepts, or details that are important to remember and write them down in a notebook using my own words. I keep a notebook for each graduate course and outline the relevant information for each chapter. This provides a quick review of information to aid in answering discussion questions or in researching relevant topics.…

    Previewing allows me to see the information that will be covered in each week. I can figure out what I already know about the subject and apply that knowledge.
