Practice Reading Different Kinds of Texts

Reading Tips for Improving your Skills:  

  1. Pick a text
  2. FIRST, scan for gist: read the first line or two of each paragraph and note down in 5-6 words what the paragraph is about.
  3. SECOND, read each paragraph in more detail. Do you understand generally what is going on?
  4. THIRD, underline phrases or words you do not know and find their meaning.
  5. FOURTH, WRITE YOUR OWN SENTENCES: use the new vocabulary or language you just learned in your own sentence. This helps you REMEMBER it for future use!
