Many times, people have difficulty reading something because they are
not mentally prepared for it.
Before you read, do you:
- look over the selection to see how it's organized?
- look to see if there are charts, pictures, or captions?
- brainstorm about what you already know about the topic?
- think about what you would like to still know about the topic?
