5 Moves Once you have given some thought to the context in which a text occurs, you are ready to move into a close reading of the actual text. Using a method such as the one below recommended by Rossenwasser and Stephen (2006) will help you examine parts of the text systematically. Analyzing the text in a systematic manner is an essential step in understanding the connections between the various sections of the text. Move 1: Suspend Judgment Move 2: Define Parts and How They are Related Move 3: Look for Patterns of Repetition and Contrast and for Anomaly A. Patterns of Repetition B. List strands C. Binary opposites Move 4: Make the Implicit Explicit Move 5: Keep Reformulating Questions and Explanations T RYING THE M ETHOD O UT M OVE 1: Suspend Judgment What does Suspend Judgment really mean? Just note observations (text/visuals etc) and do not yet judge as good or bad. Purpose This is to allow you to explore the text with an open mind. This will enable you to move away from generic responses such as like & dislike, advantages & disadvantages. Here are two prompts to help you to suspend judgment: What I find interesting here is the author is writing using a third person view on the situation where is is for the idea of educational social media. Each section is based on the opinion of a different person. What also puzzled me was that she concluded without making a stand of her own. Kids are exposed to social media at such a young age. Based on only one case study. M OVE 2: A) Major sections or sub-headings What are the major sections of this text? If the writer uses sub-headings, then this will serve as a guide to the sections.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
