By Lisa Valentino, Seminole Community College Aligned with the PQ4R learning model of Rathus's text, the Study Guide opens with a "Preview" section, encouraging students to discern their impressions of chapter material. The "Question" section poses learning objectives in an outline format and serves as the foundation for the two subsequent sections, "Reading for Understanding" and "Reflection Breaks." These two sections include cross-relational activities, such as matching and critical thinking exercises, which build on the material just covered. "Expand" pulls together all sections with applied exercises, expanding on the "life connection" theme of the text.
