Approaches to Reading 1 Understanding complicated texts requires careful, systematic reading. Spend this week thinking about how you read, and consider the information below. Before you start— Get the right level of comfort: read on your bed, at a desk, on a sofa. Get the right level of noise: read in complete silence or with some background noise. Get enough light: read by sunlight, lounge lights, room lights. Get the right environment: read alone, read with others. First read— Underline or highlight passages you feel are important. Put question marks next to passages you don't understand so you can find them quickly later or in class. Bracket words you don't know and find them in a dictionary . Losing concentration? Take a short break, and then come back to the essay. Read again and again until you regain your concentration. Try summarizing what the author has argued so far. And then— Spend some time summarizing what you have just read. Get together with students from our class to work through complicated passages.
