Textbook authors have already done a lot of the work for you. They’ve put in section headings that tell you what you’re going to be reading about, they’ve put all of the important words in bold or italic print, and they’ve added pictures, charts, graphs, lists of vocabulary words, summaries, and review questions. Textbook authors have provided these“learning tools” in order to make it easier for you to understand and remember the infor- mation they’re presenting. In this section, you will discover how to use these learning tools. You will also learn how to Survey, Read, and Review. Knowing how to survey, read, and review will help you remember what you read. SURVEY. Surveying gives you a quick overview of the material you’re going to be reading. To survey, do the following: u read the title, headings, and everything in bold and italic print u look at the pictures, graphs, and charts u read the introduction, summary, and review questions On the following page you’ll find a music history textbook chapter onThe Beatles. If you were to survey this page, you would first read the title and each of the section headings: The Beatles dominate the music indus- try, The Beatles get their start in Liverpool, The Beatles change their image, The Beatles find success in the U.S., and The Beatles go their separate ways. You would then read everything in bold or italic print, look at the chart, and read the Review Questions. Surveying provides you with a great deal of information in a short amount of time. (Look at how much you learn about The Beatles just from reading the section headings.) In addition to providing you with an overview of the material, surveying also provides you with an“information framework.” Having this framework of main ideas makes it much easier to understand and remember the more detailed information.
