read intelligently

Added on by Matthew Sutton.

Here is my secret to teaching reading to my students. Reading intelligently means answering these five questions:

  1. What is the question the writing is trying to answer?

  2. What is the thesis / answer / main theme of the writing?

  3. What is the supporting argument for the thesis?

  4. What is the context of the writing?

  5. Is the argument compellingly successful? How so?
