• Actively read "The Legacy of Greece" class handout in preparation for a reading quiz. Try these techniques to zero in on how ancient Greece has influenced (broadly) Western civilization:
  1. Underline or highlight key words and phrases as you read. When you return to it later on, you can easily see which points you identified as important. Be selective - too much highlighting won't help.
  2. Make annotations in the margin to summarize points, raise questions, challenge what you've read, jot down examples and so on. This takes more thought than highlighting, so you'll probably remember the content better. (Use sticky notes if you don't want to mark the text.)
  3. Test yourself by reading for half an hour, putting the text away and jotting down the key points from memory. Go back to the text to fill in gaps.
  4. Look for 'signposts' that help you understand the text - paying attention to headings and in-text phrases like 'most importantly', 'in contrast', 'on the other hand'.
  5. Explain what you've read to someone else.
