SQ4R – Learning Strategy for Adult Learning Andragogy

The SQ4R active learning strategy and reading system provides scaffolding for textbook reading and taking notes.

The letters in theSQ4R acronym stand for five steps:

Survey
Question
Read
Reflect
Recite …and…
Review

Some versions change words four and five for the key words: Survey, Question, Read, Respond, Record, and Review.

These key words will help all students, but especially busy graduate students learn more from textbook reading with better preparation for assignments, posts, and quizzes. SQ5R also helps identify gaps in understanding, which is very helpful for online learning, since most of the initial concept acquisition is completed during solitary study.

The most effective way to implement SQ4R is to think of Before Reading, During Reading, and After Reading.

Let’s go granular with the five components.

Survey: Scan the titles and subtitles. Study the pictures, charts, or graphs.Read the chapter preface,summary and any chapter questions.

Question: Turn each title, section title, and the first sentence of every paragraph into a question

Read: Read only one section at a time and look to answer the questions that you created.

Reflect: Connect what you’ve read to the Discussion Forum prompts and the assignment instructions. Also, consider connections to your professional practice. 

Recite/Record: Speak out loud the questions you created and the answers you’ve found. Read outloud the bolded or emphasized portions of the text. My daughter used to use the record feature on her iPhone to record important components of the readings and her impressions. 

Review: Keep notes out and visible for quick review. Several students have shared that they take a photo of their notes with their mobile phone and/or take a screenshot of digital notes. Many students have shared that they email their notes to their work email address so they can see them at work. Look at notes first before each new study session.

Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!

July 4th has fallen on a Sunday 34 times since 1776. The first July 4th Sunday was 1779 and the last was 2010, while the next will be 2027. Seward began continuously celebrating on Saturday, July 4th of 1868 and has done so 22 times on a Sunday. The bi-centennial July 4th celebration of 1976 was on a Sunday.

CSPAN rebroadcasted a May 17, 2021 Book Chat with Patrick J. O’Donnell who discussed his book, The Indispensables

Here is the link: https://www.c-span.org/video/?511872-1/the-indispensables The Indispensables

The Indispensables follows O’Donnell’s previous book, Washington’s Immortals, also an exceptional read of an important period of history.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ Poetry for Independence Day

Good Night

Carl Sandburg

Many ways to spell good night. Fireworks at a pier on the Fourth of July

        spell it with red wheels and yellow spokes.

They fizz in the air, touch the water and quit.

Rockets make a trajectory of gold-and-blue

        and then go out. Railroad trains at night spell with a smokestack

        mushrooming a white pillar. Steamboats turn a curve in the Mississippi crying

        in a baritone that crosses lowland cottonfields

        to a razorback hill. It is easy to spell good night.

                                     Many ways to spell good night.

“We Live in the Wind and the Sand and Our Eyes are on the Stars” ~ WASP Motto

WASP Motto

Image Found Here: http://www.robinsonlibrary.com/history/history/worldwar2/wasp.htm

The Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), (also Women’s Army Service Pilots or Women’s Auxiliary Service Pilots) were a civilian women pilots’ organization, whose members were United States federal civil service employees. The 1074 members of WASP became trained pilots who tested aircraft, ferried aircraft and trained other pilots. Their purpose was to free male pilots for combat roles during World War II. The WASP museum is located on Avenger Field in Sweetwater, Texas.

The WASPs flew more than 60 million miles flying planes out of 192 bases. One pilot, Gertrude “Tommy” Tompkins Silver was the only Women Airforce Service Pilots’ member to go missing during World War II. On October 26, 1944, Tompkins piloted her plane from a foggy runway on Mines Field, adjacent to the Los Angeles airport, and was not heard from again.

WASPs with PT-19, the first plane usually flown in primary training. Women on far left in dark glasses is Gertrude “Tommy” Tompkins, according to Texas Women’s University Libraries WASP Archives.

Mr. Frank Jacobs , a retired aerospace engineer from Manhattan Beach, California has a haunting childhood memory of seeing a plane crash into the Santa Monica bay that day. He still dives to find Gertrude “Tommy” Tompkins as poart of the  Missing Aircraft Search Team. Read his account at this link from the Deep Explorers’ blog: http://www.deepexplorers.com/history/last-missing-wasp/ 

In July, 2008,  President Obama signed legislation finally granting WASPs the Congressional Gold Medal, in recognition of their service. In honor of Memorial Day, May 27, it is important to remember all who served for the United States.

The 2017 Young Adutl (YA) book  Seized by the Sun written by Jim Ure tells the life story of Gertrude “Tommy” Tompkins
