TEXTO 1 - IMPROVING READING COMPREHENSION

Many students dont realize how important it is to be able to fully comprehend what youread. Being able to completely and accurately comprehend what you read is essential to yourability to learn, perform well on tests and ultimately succeed in college and in a career. Thissection introduces the REDW Strategy for Finding Main Ideas. The REDW strategy is designedto help you find the main idea in each paragraph and help you comprehend the informationcontained in your assignment. REDW stands for Read, Examine, Decide, Write.

Read the entire paragraph to get an idea of what the paragraph is about. As you read youmight find it helpful to quietly read out loud if you are an Auditory or if you are a Visual Learner(see Learning Styles section) you may want to draw a picture to represent what you are reading.

Once you have idea of what the paragraph is about, examine each sentence in the paragraphto find the words that tell what the sentence is about. The easiest way to find the words that tellwhat the sentence is about is to cross out the words that are not needed in order to understandwhat the sentence is about. On a piece of paper, write the important words that tell what eachsentence is about.

Now examine the words you wrote on the piece of paper and determine which sentencecontain the words that best describe the main idea of the paragraph. These words are the mainidea of the paragraph and the remaining words simply provide support for the main idea.The last step is to write the main idea of each paragraph in your notes. This will help youremember what you learned and provide you good study notes to prepare for exams.
