What’s the difference between reading passively or reading actively? Does it make a difference in what the reader can retain, recall and/or reuse later? We will review numerous Active Reading Strategies, that may just seem like very good study skills, that demonstrate ways to “do something with it” as you are reading. The basic concept is to create your own study guide as you go along rather than doing a major study session just before the test.
