GC116 – Readscan – Chapter Preview Scanning Tool (Reading Journal)
GC116-S3 – Chapter Preview Scan – In a three-step process, for reading notetaking purposes, individually, with a partner or small group, Alexa or Instructor will guide students to skim the table of contents, appendix, glossary and references. Then, scan the headlines, italics, bullets, icons, color-coding or pictures. Next, students will read and summarize the introductory and end of the chapter paragraphs, on the front and back of an index card (or sheet of paper, folded vertically). Then, students will use remaining index cards to note key points on the front, and details, examples and illustrations on the back, as they read.
