Preview a very short text
In the previous video you learned that Step 1, previewing your study material, is a very important step. And that’s why we are going to do an assignment to practise that skill.
A preview gives you an overview of the material before you actually start studying. Just remember: You don’t need to understand the material at the previewing stage.
You are now going to practise previewing with the text below (“Decision-making Processes”).
- Make sure you have a blank sheet of paper at hand so you can jot down any words from the text that you think are important.
- Set a timer for 15 seconds: That’s how much time you’ll have to identify the subjects that will be discussed in the whole text, so make sure that you stop after the alarm goes off.
- Now open the attachment and ready, set, preview!
In the following video you can see how our students got on and we’ll show you an example of a good preview.
