Storyboard Text

  • What is muscle reading and what are the three phases of muscle reading? How will you best use this information?
  • Muscle reading is an effective way to readtextbook in order to efficiently mine information. It helps the reader avoid ‘zoning out’ or takingnaps while reading.
  • The firstphase is before you read the textbook. You can read the table of contents, preface, titles, and summaries. this will help you understand the ‘flow’ of the article. Here, you ask yourself what you want out of the material, as well as questions you may have in the pre-reading stage.
  • The second phase is when you actually read the text. To make this more efficient, you need to i) read while reminding yourself to stay in the present, ii) underline or highlight key concepts, iii) answer questions that you came up in the previous phase.
  • The final phase is the ‘postreading’ phase. Here the reader should i) recite either aloud or discuss with a friend, ii) review the material after reading, iii) review the material again. This will help you recalling the material.
