As you read, write down the main points. You can use these to review the story or to use if a question asks you to summarize.

After reading, look at the multiple choice. Highlight the main points and pick the question that best suits as the answer.

Next is the ORQ. For the ORQ, again, highlight or circle the main points.

Create a graphic organizer that can help you answer the question using the main points.

To start the ORQ, it helps to restate the question as a first sentence.

When writing the ORQ, use detail, but don't put any unnecessary or repetitive information.

Lastly, read over your answers and double-check for any mistakes you might have made earlier.
