When time is limited, it might be hard to read numerous reading materials from arange of different courses in one session. I started by focusing on the titles/headingsof each part and subsection, then skimmed the text for terms that were closelyconnected to those titles/headings, since they were likely to be the most relevantamong the 'junk' material. I then returned to the start and repeated the procedure.I also discuss it with a few of my pupils, since they can relate toand validate my feelings, and/or because the instructors canprovide insight on the matter.When I'm reading journal articles or other published material, I always begin by reading theabstract and introduction. I should be able to deduce from the abstract if the work is aresearch piece, a case study, a literature review, or anything else. Following that, I would rereadthe introduction to ensure that I was familiar with the topic. At times, the authors create termsthat are highly complicated and dense with difficult-to-understand psychological or medicaljargon. This is something I would honestly dismiss for the time being since, if it is relevant, theywould most likely rewrite or further explain it in the discussion and conclusion sections, whichare found near the conclusion of the work.
To summarize, I'd begin with the abstract and browse quickly through theintroduction to familiarize myself with the background, past findings, and purposeof the essay, before scrolling all the way down to the discussion and conclusion.This has been quite good for me! And, maybe, this will cut down on the timerequired deciphering the rest of the article.
Read, but not just any academic writing; read a diverse selection of academic literature.Determine who is the best and most well-known expert in your subject and read as muchof their work as possible (even if it is not directly connected to your study; in fact, it ismore crucial that it is not directly related to your study.Write. Similarly to how you would practice writing. Significantly. Prepare essays, bookreviews, and blog posts by reworking them again until they are better than your first copy.Write as often as possible. For instance, make it a habit to write every day or scheduletime to write completely multiple times a week.Solicit helpful criticism. To get candid comments on your work, seek out other outstandingwriters and avid readers (for example, competent instructors or grad students you trust).Engage an editor's services. This is something that, in my opinion, is not done oftenenough. It's a bitter pill to take if you lack the financial resources to hire someone tocriticize your work, but it's definitely worth it. Request that they update a page for you todetermine if your editing style "jives" with theirs and to gain from their expertise.
