Just as you have a writing process (which you are covering in your Composition course) you also have a reading process.

Do you...

  • Seek a quiet space
  • Drink or eat before/while reading
  • Have a plan for what to read
  • Have you given yourself enough time to read what you have planned
  • Do you read more than once
  • Take notes - document ideas on reading

You will also have a process in taking effective notes both in class and at home after you've done the reading.
