Student Dialog - Active Reading
Deena: I can see how active reading can be applied to many things we do. It can especially be applied to our individual and group research projects.
Jose: Our data collection? Our analysis?
Sage: Our report!
Deena: All of it. I was also thinking that it would help us to become better critical thinkers on a daily basis.
Sage: Is that sort of like being aware of multiple possibilities?
Jose: And not just to accept everything we read as absolute. Not only what we read, but what we hear too. I think it can also make a difference in the way we write.
Deena: Yeah, particularly if our audience is an active reader.
Sage: Wow! That's a really good point, Deena.
Jose: Speaking of questioning things, where did you get this information about active reading anyway?
Deena: I sort of put it together from several sources. I picked out what I thought was the best information. If anyone has some good Web sites or resources, let me know.
