Ask questions for big learning gains

Find yourself skimming over the same paragraphs over and over ? Asking questions can help you make big learning gains whether you're studying on your own or in a group. Direct your focus on digestible chunks, this helps target your focus on important reading material.

We all have heard the importance of annotating. Writing notes to yourself as you read, as well as questioning what you’re reading, helps you to stay engaged and increases your reading comprehension. You might even find it beneficial to read the text out loud. Structuring the way you read material, helps to structure your studying habits too!
