Reading Critically


Good readers do more than simply comprehend the information presented in a text. They evaluate the text in multiple ways. This lesson guides students to look deeply into texts. The Reading Critically lesson includes a definition, an explanation of how the skill is used, an example, and practice questions with excerpts from real books.
