The first thing I am going to do before I even think about opening the book is make myself a nice cup of tea, pumpkin spice tea to be more specific. I’m then going to go into my room open up my backpack and pull out the book. After I have my tea and my book I am going to sit in my comfy chair and turn on the reading light. Only then will I open the book and begin to read the article. I am first going to read the first sentence of the article and the very last one. Then I’m going to read the first and last sentence in every paragraph. I hope to accomplish the main ideas from doing this.
After I have an idea of what the article is about I will go through once and read the entire thing. After reading for an hour I’m going to go play a game of FIFA to help relax and reboot my mind. Once the game is done I’m going to finish the reading. While doing the reading I am going to underline all the pieces of information that I find interesting. Any questions that I have about the texts I am going to write in the margins of the book.
After I have completed the reading I am going to go back through and re read all my annotations and re read all the underlined information. I hope that this helps spark new thoughts and if it creates new questions I will write those down with a different colored pen.
