Learning targets: active critical reading strategies, summary, prewriting
- Preview the questions on the quiz for Daniel Kahneman’s “Don’t Blink! The Hazards of Confidence.”
- Read this brief article on how to segment a reading into chunks.
- Print, read and annotate Kahneman’s “Don’t Blink! The Hazards of Confidence.”
- There are five chunks in the Kahneman reading. Draw lines separating one chunk from another in your printout of the Kahneman reading.
- To annotate means to summarize the gist of each page. Circle any important concepts or keywords. Write down any questions you have. Put a question mark next to anything you don’t understand. Make notes that connect what Kahneman is saying to your own experiences making judgments, predictions, and decisions.
- Take notes on the guided-notetaking handout I distributed in class on Monday. If you didn’t get it, just print out the quiz and use it to take notes on.
- Write a brief paragraph (2-3 sentences max) summarizing each of the 5 “chunks” of the Kahneman article.
- Study in preparation for the quiz. You should be able to answer the questions on the quiz from memory before concluding that you are finished studying.
- Post photos of at least three pages of your annotations and your guided notes on your ePortfolio.
