October 2009Reading Academic MaterialWhat was the Agenda?
The course leader discussed lot of techniques for reading. Because reading is the firstand important form of obtaining knowledge. But the interesting thing I realized wasthe SMART technique which is considered to be the best way to read academicmaterial. S means to select or scan the material. M for moving key areas of thedocument and chart the main heading and ideas, A for actively interaction, R for reducing speed to improve comprehension and finally T stands for taking notes andreferencing details.
Before having no know how of this effective way of reading, my reading skills were poor because I don’t know exactly that how to read? To get more on this I visited theliabrary and consulted some books which are given under:Social Research Methods by Williams NicholasBeginning research by Lowe MichelleAfter consulting these books and some online material I was able to realize the wothof reading. Scanning the piece of writing is quite difficult task but after practicing,more and more reading I am now in a better position to scan the things quite promptly.
