main idea of mythMyth 2: You have to read every word. Some experts suggest that you don’t
need to read every word of a passage. This is particularly true once you
break your reading task into steps with distinct purposes. For example, the
first step in SQ3R is to survey. This step requires that you quickly preview
the selection to get a grasp of the reading task and to set your purpose for
your reading session. A quick preview allows you to identify new or difficult
words and create questions based on headings and subheadings that
you can answer as you read. Some books, such as reference books and
handbooks, are not meant to be read word for word. Selective reading
handled wisely is an effective reading strategy.
Which do you think is the myth?
