SQ4R (Survey, Question, Read Recite, Record, Review) is a technique ESL students can use to comprehend content reading. First, students survey the chapter by skimming it, looking at headings and visuals. Second, students question, writing down any questions they have about the pictures, charts, or subheadings, etc. The third step is to read the passage. The fourth step is reciting, where students answer their own questions from what they learned in the reading. The fifth step is recording, when students write down their answers. Finally, the students review what they wrote. (Richard-Amato & Snow 1992).
