SQ3R is an active reading strategy that will help you absorb more information from your reading.

SQ3R stands for:

  • Survey
  • Question
  • Read
  • Recall
  • Review

SURVEY

Skim the text to to get a general idea of what it is about.

 

QUESTION

Read with a specific focus. Ask yourself why you are reading the text and what you want to get out of it. Your comprehension improves if your mind is actively searching for answers to questions.

 

READ

Read carefully, breaking up your reading into small sections, looking for main ideas.

 

RECALL

Mentally go through the ideas you have just read and pick out the main points. Check that you can answer your initial questions.

 

REVIEW

How much can you remember?
