“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free." - Frederick Douglass
Most of us are found juggling in the process of understanding the piece of information that we have already read. This is the result of failure in word recognition and the problems associated with language learning.
Hey chill! This is not a major problem. This can be overcomed if you are keen on doing so. Reading is associated with information. The kind of knowledge that you extract from a particular informative piece has nothing to do with the number of words that you read. Reading involves the decoding of the information and processing it thereafter. The process of extraction of the information must be done in the least amount of time.
Reading comprehension can be mastered with a bit of practice. All you need to do is take a deep breathe and do as I tell you.
Read the first page of introduction and the table of contents. This will help you get an overall impression of the subject that you are about to read. This is also known as Pre-reading survey.
Once you know what is the book all about, then you can choose the area that you would like to explore in terms of gaining knowledge. By identifying the areas that you wish to learn, you can direct your focus on the topic of your interest.
Once you commence your reading process try to figure out the questions that your reading can answer. This also helps you in understanding the topic in a better way.
Pen down the highlighting points of the topic on a separate sheet of paper. This will help you to retain the information that you have read.
Once you are done with your reading, try to analyze what you have already read and whether you have served your own purpose of extracting the maximum information in the least amount of time. This is also known as Post reading review.
Remember one thing in life, never read the lines always read between the lines.
You could have made a hub of this subject. Why post it in a forum?
