Reading Tip -- Explain it!

Hi All,

Are you dealing with difficult reading... or something you want to understand more deeply? If so, one good strategy is to explain the reading to someone else. Talking through the reading with someone (a friend, partner, or family member) who isn't in your program of study can be particularly effective... explaining it to someone who doesn't have the same background as you will focus you on the basic elements first and then you can delve more deeply into the material.

Another strategy of course is to discuss the reading with someone from your class. Our classmates can be some of our most important colleagues on this school journey.

Good luck with the work!
