CHENNAI, NOV. 20. Sharon Schindele, an education expert from the United States, has a simple technique for students who have a tough time remembering what they read. She calls it "Read, Cover, Recite and Check." At an international conference on "Strategic approaches to enhance learning" being held at Chola Sheraton, she explained how the technique works. "A student should first read a paragraph or two and cover the text. Step three would be reciting aloud what he has understood from the text. And finally check for accuracy," she says.
Ms. Schindele was conducting a workshop on reading comprehension, applying the techniques of the Strategic Instruction Model developed by Kansas University's Center for Research on Learning. This is one of the 30 researched study techniques to help students above class IV read and understand large volumes of complex reading materials.
