Being an active reader
Before we begin to read the first intensive reading (IR), here is some information about being an active reader.
When we do reading at MIC, we don’t want you to read quietly by yourself. We want you to work together and communicate with your classmates and the teacher.
Usually, your teacher will ask you to read just one or two paragraphs of a text at a time. When you finish, you will follow these steps.
“Was anything difficult?”
“What does this mean?”
“I don’t understand this part.”
“What did you read?”
“What happened next?”
