Deep Read for Understanding

Deep Read for Understanding small

Once you have skimmed your sources in order to get an idea of what debates are happening in the subject you are interested in, it is time to deep read. Now you need to properly work with the text, make sure that you understand what it says, look up words you are unsure about, take notes summarising the content – and take notes with your own thoughts about it – do you agree or disagree? are there things you would question? (but make sure you don’t forget which notes are reflecting what the original text says, and which are your own thoughts).
