Here is how to use the SQ3R method:
Survey - Quickly skim the assignment and read headings, captions, etc.
Question - Ask what you want to learn. Also, ask questions teachers might ask.
Read - Stay busy. Take notes and look up words you don’t know.
Recite - Answer the question you asked. Say the answers out loud.
Review - Look over what you’ve read. Relate class notes to your reading
