Name of Strategy
During Reading: Guided Notes
I recommend that students refer to a book titled, "What Smart Students Know,Maximum Grades, Optimum Learning, Minimum Time" by Adam Robinson for tips on how to read for understanding. Robinson leads students through a 12 steps to process information from reading sources. Chapter 7 answers the question, "What Information Is Important Here?" This is a helpful guide for students who are overwhelmed with the amount of information in an AP course.
