Footage description: The film shows children using the SQ3R routine - Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Review - as a systematic method of approaching reading. Opening section shows children at Aspley Heath Junior School, Woburn Sands, working with their teacher on environmental studies, prefaced by one girl's comment on a book she is using for this project. Merritt, voice-over, explains the project is inspired by the building of the new city of Milton Keynes. Children and teacher discuss what information resources they can use for their work. Miss Higgins takes one boy through the 'Survey' part of the SQ3R routine; checking on the title, and the acknowledgement and date of a book. A second group of children use the resources of the class next door. The teacher, Mrs. Sollars, helps them select books and questions them on their usefulness. Another group visit the library of the local Secondary school, Fulwood. where the librarians are pupils from the upper forms. Merritt points out the help this can give where pupils are working individually and the class teacher cannot provide all the help every child needs. A group visit Woburn Sands Public Library where the librarian, Di Clark, helps them find material. Merritt comments on the reading process itself. Shots of children discussing their work with each other. The 'recite' stage of SQ3R is illustrated by Miss Higgins bringing out the main points of one girls study with her. The final 'review' stage: teacher and pupil review the whole reading cycle and the outcome in the form of the questions and answers collected.
