  1. Skimming • Brief over view of a text • When you’re NOT looking for one specific answer • When you have to read a lot of materials in a short amount of time • E.g. What was the neighbor’s advice?

  2. Skimming – How? • Read the first and last sentence of each paragraph. • Don’t read every word or every sentence. Let your eyes skim over the text, taking in key words. • Continue to think about the meaning of the text.

  3. Scanning • A way of reading to look for specific information in a text. • For looking up a phone number, for browsing TV schedules, timetables, lists, catalogues or web pages for information. • E.g. How many sons does the mom have?

  4. Scanning – How? • Don’t read every word or every sentence. • Let your eyes move quickly across the page until you find what you are looking for. • Use clues on the page, such as heading and titles, number, names to help you
