Identify the skills you’ve learned this week. How could each of these apply to your academic work? How could each of these apply to your professional work? A lot of great study skills we mentioned in Chapter 7. We learned about previewing, marking, reading with concentration, and previewing in regards to improving our reading and studying skills. We also learned what is important to focus on when completing and reviewing Math, Science, and Social Science assignments. In addition to, understanding the difference is between primary and supplementary material.
All of these skills apply to my academic work and if implemented will only make me more efficient, productive and successful. I believe these skills will do the same for e professionally as well. The reading and writing suggestions will definitely be helpful and I can easily apply them with the type of work I do. I am a Technical Writer and I have to read, write, review and edit technical manuals; so this may help me have a better understanding of the manuals and/or equipment I am reviewing. 3.

Describe the reading and comprehension strategies you will employ. How will these help make you a more effective reader? I will be implementing each of these strategies. For the most, part I always have and I don’t think I even realized it. But I do plan on increasing the amount of time spent reviewing the material. I have always looked it over ahead of time and determined the amount of pages and planned out a schedule; but I would like to work on incorporating the mapping skills to see if it will benefit me.
I think by spending more time mapping the chapter out in writing, I will be able to focus better on the material and recognize important things I marked on the map and the hope is that it will 4. What is “primary source material”? Explain why knowing how to identify and use primary source materials is important for academic reading and writing. Primary sources are different from other resources because they are original ports and/or documents that are filled with the research, experiments, and findings that were developed and then contributed to create the other resources.
Wisped and other similar sources are not considered academic because they generally do not do any research of their own and they are easily edited and have the potential to be incomplete and/or incorrect. Knowing how to identify the difference between source materials is important because the risk of being misinformed is too high on sites like Wisped and its best to get your information from primary sources.
