    Read this information from our textbook, and use it when doing your homework tonight:

    1. Focus on ideas that interest you.
    – Highlight sections that capture your interest and make you pause and think.
    – Highlight sections that relate to your experiences or two ideas you have seen elsewhere.

    2. Write questions and comments in the margins.
    – Note words or sentences that you don’t understand.
    – Note examples or explanations that are unclear.
    – Write your reactions such as “I don’t believe this” or “this is exactly what happened to me” or “this idea is the same as what I already know or have read.”

    This information may also help. It’s also from our textbook:

    Skim the article.
    – read first and last paragraphs.
    – Look for subtitles.
    – Look for keywords and repeated words.
    – Develop a general sense of the topic.
    – Then, read through the entire article.

    This, and the two suggestions above are three techniques for Open Reading.
    Open Reading is one of our skills in chapter one.
