Annotated Research

Question: What is the effect of studying the SQ3R (Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Review) approach to reading on both reading and writing?

Answer: “Found that students receiving special instruction in SQ3R and in composition improved their reading and writing skills more that students not receiving such instruction.” RH Summerville. 1984. P. 212.

Comment: Of course. Students learning how to use the survey [Title, sub-title, first paragraph, first sentence of intermediate paragraphs, and last paragraph] not only improve comprehension, but they also reinforce the use of the structure in expository writing. A No-brainer. RayS.

Title: “Annotated Bibliography of Research in the Teaching of English.” JD Marshall and RK Durst. Research in the Teaching of English (May 1986), 198-215.
