Assignment: Specialized Reading Strategies

  1. Define the category of your Reading Journal selection. As a reminder, the categories discussed in this section are
    • online text
    • science text
    • social science text
    • math text
    • visual elements included in text
      • (Hint: every reading journal option will be an online text.  Do any of the other categories also apply to yours?)
  2. Select one of the categories discussed in this section, and apply the specific reading strategies suggested.
  3. Write a paragraph (3-5+ sentences long) that describes how your reading process differed, using the specialized strategies, from what it looked like in previous Try It exercises.  Do you feel that you understand your reading journal selection any better as a result?
