To help you stay focused while you read, try giving yourself questions to answer. One way to do this is to turn each section heading into a question. For example, you could turn the heading Lemur Characteristics into the question, “What are the lemur’s characteristics?” Think about your question as you read. When you finish reading, see if you can answer your question. Before you start to read a section, look for any word in bold or italic print. Ask yourself, “Why is this word, person, place, or event important?” When you finish reading the section, you should be able to answer that question. For example, after you read Behaviors of the Ring-Tailed Lemur, you should know what a troop is. You Try It - Read the sample textbook page on the Ring-Tailed Lemur. As you read each section, have a question in mind. When you are finished reading, see if you can answer the Review Questions. “Sometimes when I’m reading, my mind wanders. Sometimes I don’t even remember what I just read. Reading out loud really helps me pay attention to what I’m reading.” Chris
