Do you understand what you read? Is comprehension your problem? Can you easily identify the subject matter of the text you are reading? Can you differentiate between topic and main idea in any given text? Do you know what is stated in the text and what is implied?
Sharpen your reading skills. If you want to write well, read more. When you read more, you will practice yourself to have an analytical mind to breakdown text into what is relevant and what isn’t, what is fact and opinion. There’s a lot more you could learn about acquiring good reading skills. There are lots more for you to know about the skill of reading.
When you’re reading:
- You are quietly listening with your eyes
- How do you listen with your eyes and learn?
- Do you need eyes as big as an owl’s?
- Know the truths about reading!!
“Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.”
