    Reading with a critical eye

    Reading with a Critical Eye

    • Critical Reading (and thinking):

      • Understand

      • Analyze

      • Evaluate

    • Tips:

    • Acknowledge, analyze, deconstruct your own perspective and the author’s perspective

    • Determine how the argument works (main and supporting points, evidence, mechanics)

    • Evaluate support for a claim - is it appropriate? Is it strong enough?


    Find your own process

    Find Your Own Process

    • The process you establish is up to you. SQ3R works very well for textbooks but it may not be as good for journal articles.

    • The key is to find your own ways of becoming an active reader. In general, the process should involve the following:

      • Finding the right place to read – free from distraction

      • Previewing the reading for main ideas and concepts

      • Formulating questions about the reading

      • Taking notes as you read

      • Engaging with your notes out loud

      • Reviewing your notes regularly
