Dealing With Difficult Readings….

When you are asked to read things that prove difficult, what can you do?

  1. Circle unclear words to look up or use context clues to figure out.
  2. Make notes in the margins
  3. Underline passages that appear interesting, relevant, and/or important.
  4. Pose questions to the text of things that you want to know more or better understand.
