How To Read A Book: 3 Strategies For Critical Reading

How To Read A Book: 3 Strategies For Critical Reading | Library | Scoop.it

"If you’re not familiar with Adler and Van Doren’s How To Read A Book, it is worth, well, reading.

As you might’ve guessed, these have less to do with decoding, and more to do with comprehension. Actually, more to do with the perspective you approach your reading with."

Check out this sketch note that provides three strategies for critical reading:

* Inspectional Reading

* Analytical Reading

* Synoptical Reading

Other terms might also be used such as Quick Reading, Close Reading and Cross Reading or Whole Reading, Parts Reading and Social Reading. Additional information is available in the post.

Close reading is definitely a "survival skill" particularly in a world drowned in information. Close reading is all about reading differently, it is reading for deep understanding through paying attention to what others would normally oversight. Being a close reader entails focus and dedication to your reading material. It empowers readers to delve deeper into the latent meanings of text searching for cues that make the reading  a totally different experience one that resembles the detective wok. Close reading is also about critical reading, reading that does not take things at face value but rather investigates for what is hidden between the lines.

Andrea Luna's curator insight, February 26, 2014 6:29 PM

This generation is known for its technologies. Its known for coming up with the latest technology. We are known to not use communication skills verbally but technology can be a way to learn. There are many apps that people come up with in order to learn how to count, how to read, how to do everything basically and it is a clever way to learn. Using technology can cause a distraction for all we know but we just have to wait and see the results.

Nikole Maroe's curator insight, March 4, 2014 12:56 PM

I think this article is interesting because you would think that you could just read a book to practice reading. Nowadays everything is getting electronic, even in local elementary schools every student is receiving iPads. This idea of giving K-8 grade students iPads to work on in class is repulsive.  I do not think there has been an improvement to teaching or learning with these enhances in the classroom and the fact that there are "55 free iPad Apps for practicing  reading" is wrong, well at least thats what i believe. The younger generation is already so intwined with technology so in my eye i do not think that it needs to be in the classroom as well.
