Your final activity for the week is to reflect on the strategy you used this week and think about where to go from here. Instead of submitting a word processing file with your reflection, please click “Reply” below and answer each of the following questions in a Discussion Journal post.
Discussion Questions To Reflect On
- Did you find Surveying to be a useful strategy for your 300/94 assignment? Why or why not? Be specific and discuss whether it helped with focusing on the material, understanding the text, and/or remembering the text. Also discuss if it made your reading feel faster or slower. Finally, talk about how you applied it to the 300/94 material. For example, “Surveying was useful when reading ‘Educated’ this week because knowing I had 20 pages to read helped me manage my time and stay focused…) (This should be about one paragraph long.)
- How could you use Surveying in another class? (This should be at least 2-3 sentences.)
- Based on your reading assignments for the upcoming week in your 300/94 class, which NEW strategy do you think will be most helpful to use next? (The possible strategies are Annotate, Double-Entry Journals, Patterns, Purpose, Schema, Skim/Scan, Summary/Paraphrase, Time Management, and Vocabulary Building. You can find information about each strategy on the Modules page.) Pick onestrategy and give your justification for whythat would be a good strategy to apply to your 300/94 materials. (This should be at least 3-5 sentences)
