Note places where the author is “in conversation” with other theorists. If we have read/discussed these theorists, it might be useful to return to the readings or your notes from these other writers in order to follow the specific points being discussed. If we have not read them, consider what you think you need to know about this other work in order to more fully understand the piece you are considering. Does the writer present any kind of summary of the other writer’s work that should be read more closely? Summarize what you have read in a single paragraph. Take 5-10 minutes to write this up right after you’ve finished reading. This serves a similar function as margin writing, but is cumulative. (The critical reflections serve this function.)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
