Reading

  • If you are a visual learner, use a highlighter.
  • For textbook reading, read the title, the concluding section, skim the subheadings, then read the whole chapter with the framework in mind.
  • Allot time for reading and re-reading.
  • If you have trouble remembering what you’ve read, use three steps:
    1. Underline or highlight the text.
    2. Take notes.
    3. A few days later, type up your notes to reinforce them.

“I usually do not re-read my papers too thoroughly, but this time we broke it down from paragraph to paragraph. This allowed me to look at smaller sections and maintain my focus.”
- Bubba Miller

Quotes

“In coversation you can use timing, a look, an inflection. But on the page all you have is commas, dashes, the amount of syllables in a word. When I write, I read everything out loud to get the right rhythm.”
- Fran Lebowitz
