Revising Your Reading Process and Managing Your Assignments
can tailor your reading process to meet the demands of different
texts and classes. If your typical way of reading produces as
much frustration as comprehension, it's time to revise your approach
to reading by revising your strategies.
Even the best reading strategies cannot be effective if you lack
the time to complete assignments. Each weekend, get organized
by checking the upcoming assignments for each course by considering:
- How much reading will you have to do?
- What homework will be collected? What writing assignments
- Whether you use a daily agenda, keep lists on scrap paper,
or make a schedule in your mind, managing your time well is
crucial for college success.
In addition to the reading techniques suggested here, the tutors
at the Center for Reading
and Writing (CRW) can help you improve your reading comprehension
and manage your assignments better.
