The sq3r method

  1. 1. Developed by Francis Robinson
  2. 2.  Survey the chapter before you read it. This will give you a general idea of what the chapter is about and the main points that the author is making.  Go through the chapter and glance at the headings.  Read the final paragraph of the chapter.
  3. 3.  Before you begin to read the first section, turn the heading of the first section into a question. Then read to answer the question that you generated. Formulating questions forces you to think about what you are about to read; it makes you try to predict what the author’s main point will be.
  4. 4.  Read the text material under the heading in order to find the answer to the question you generated. Reading the section to locate an answer helps you get actively involved in the text material
  5. 5.  At the end of the first heading section, answer the question that you formulated. Recite the answer in your own words, without looking at the text If you find you are unable to recall a part or all of the answer, glance over the section again. Jot down a brief answer in outline form on a piece of paper. Don’t make any notes until you have read the entire section.
  6. 6.  After you have finished reading the entire chapter, look over the notes that you have made to again familiarize yourself with the important information in the chapter. Check your memory by covering your notes and reciting the main points out loud Then cover each main point in your notes and try to recite the subordinate points that you noted until you have reviewed each headed section.
