Having Trouble Reading Your Text?

Here are some strategies that can help!

  1. Write notes in the margins.
  2. Ask yourself these questions:
    • Who is the author writing to?
    • What is the author’s purpose?
  3. Write a summary after every two or three paragraphs.
  4. Keep a dictionary by your side while you read and use it to look up words you aren’t sure of.
  5. Realize that all texts are trying to change your view of something.
  6. Answer the following:
    • Before I read this, the author assumed I believed …
    • After I finished reading, the author wanted me to believe …
    • The author was/was not successful in changing my view. How so? Why or why not?

“When you are writing you must assume that the next thing you put down belongs not for reasons of logic, good sense, or narrative developments, but because you put it there.”
