Learning from Textbook Reading at Second Level: Strategies for Success

The reading and learning strategies in this resource show students how text features help identify the most important ideas in a text, how information from both the text and the student's own knowledge and experience are important to consider when answering questions, how to summarise the information read and find the main idea. The reading and learning strategies outlined can be introduced to 1st year students as part of a transition and transfer induction programme where students find out about learning how to learn at second-level.
