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
