Queries

Anticipating the problems which you may face while doing this course, we have presented our answers, suggestions, rules & regulations etc., in this prospectus, so that you may solve these problems without facing any difficulties.

 

SELF STUDY TECHNIQUES

Since this Programme is offered through Distance Education mode, it is quite likely that some of you may be wondering how to complete the Programme successfully

It should not be difficult for you to complete the course if you plan your work schedule carefully. If you practice somewhat systematic way of studying the print materials, much of your job will become easy. We shall give you a few suggestions to make you studies easy and interesting.

We understand that you have many domestic and social commitments to attend to. Most of you are working in some schools, colleges or other institutes or work places. You may not have ample of time for studying. But it is possible to have some time regularly for your studies. Convince your colleagues and family members that you need some privacy to study and stick to a regular time table. As soon as you receive the study materials start-working on it and don’t postpone studying the materials or writing your assignments/responses.

We suggest, you should know the techniques of self study. Your study materials contain a lengthy reading list for reference purpose and for deeper understanding of the content. One strategy that gained wide acceptance is the SQ3R technique;

SQ3R stands for the initial letters of the five steps in studying text. The five steps are

(i) Survey (ii) Question (iii) Read (iv) Recall (v) Review

Survey

Survey refers to the quick glance through the title page, preface, chapter headings, etc. of a text book. Surveying a text helps the students grasps the main ideas. A glance at the title page may give you.

(i) the general subject area (ii) the level of approach (iii) the author’s name and (iv) the date and place of publication

Preface helps you decide whether or not the book deserves your attention. Contents tell you what topics the author is dealing with and how he has organized the themes. An index survey will tell you instantly whether or not the text contains what you need. It also helps you save time and efforts by directing you straight to the relevant pages.

Question

Your survey of the text will raise in you some questions. For example glancing at the title page, preface and contents, you might ask yourself :

How far can I depend on this book ?

Will the book be helpful to me as its preface suggests ?

Why should the author devote a whole chapter for such and such topic ?

Having made your survey and started to question you are now ready for reading the text.

Read

Reading a text materials demands a critical mind. When we read a text, we apply our mind with all its critical skills. Unless we read actively the questions which have been formulated cannot be answered satisfactorily.

l It is not advisable to make notes at this stage,

l This is not the stage to underline words or phrases either.

Keeping these two points in view, what perhaps, we can do at the first reading is just to look for the main ideas and the supporting detail

Recall

Reading a text is not the final step in learning. It is, instead, the first step in learning. What is read needs to be recalled for intention. Regular attempts to recall will help improve our learning in three ways (i) better concentration (ii) chance to remedy misinterpretation and (iii) reactive reading. How often to recall chiefly depends on ‘how good’ a reader you are.

Review

The purpose of reviewing is to check the validity of our recall. The best way to do this is to do a quick repeat of the other four steps i.e. Survey, Question, Read and Recall.Although the steps of SQ3R are in the logical and natural order there may be overlapping and repetitions between them. Since Distance Education students have to work on their own most of the time during their academic career, in this situation, study skills become very important.
