My plan for the fall semester is used my strategies that i learned during the summer in the workshop of learning how to learn. When i had to read something for example i take notes and i ask questions by myself about the reading. Also i will plan to used the phrases of imitations that i learn in my English class. Takes notes about the reading is helpful for me because if i forget something about the reading i check my notes and i remember everything. Also when i read something i plan highlight the most important things of the reading. When i read something i plan to do in a quiet place, and share my readings with my partners and found different points of view.
The strategies that i have to be a good note-taking is first read the article and highlight the things that i consider are important, but for me the more important things are: specifics names, dates, tittles, sub-tittles, words definition, this are basically my notes. This strategy help me a lot because when i write things that i read i can remember this later. Also this strategies help me to understand in a better way the reading. And when i have quizzes i review my notes and i can have a idea of the reading. I can connect my note-taking method to my strengths as a leaner because when i take notes i can understand the reading .
The strategies that i use when made a reading, first is ask questions when i read the tittle. Then i look the subheadings, pictures and made comments or questions for better understanding. I write the questions in my notebook and find answer to my questions. Also when i do not understand a word i try to search this word in the dictionary. And when i finish my reading reflect what i learned and visualize main points of the reading.
For me the things that help me to understand the reading is when made predictions or questions about the tittle or subheadings. Also if i read the end to the beginning i can understand better the reading. I made notes in my own words for answer my questions, i try to find the main points of the reading. And share what i learned to someone else. For example when i read the Douglass’s book first i ask question to myself and then i white my ideas and this help me a lot to understand the book. Also when i made the Anthropology’s readings i read first the subheadings, the tittle and then i made questions.
The strategies that i would like to keep is ask questions bases in the tittles, and write my questions in my notebook. Answer my questions and write notes in my own words. Also i wold like to keep visualize main points and reflect what i have learned to someone else. Also i’m going to search the unknown words for a better understanding.
