Reading strategies

Most of us don't think that we use any strategies when reading. It often happens unconsciously. For example, most of us would automatically slow down when reading a difficult text. We may even re-read the tricky parts. On the other end, when we are reading a bus timetable, most of us won't be reading the whole thing. Instead, we would check what the current time is, and then skim through the timetable to find out how long till our bus comes. The more strategies we know, and the more fluently we use these strategies when reading, the better our reading outcomes would be.


The slides below show you some reading strategies. Think about your current strategies and choose the best option that reflects how you currently read.
