Topic: Study Tips: Reading

If your study task is a reading assignment, read the material more than once.

The first time through, do not worry about unfamiliar words or ideas. Just continue reading to get an overall sense and feeling for the piece.

The second time through, look up words you do not know and make notes about the text.

Your third reading should include a paraphrase of the material. Include any symbols or themes that you can identify or questions you may wish to ask in class.
