When reading…

18 Sep

As I’ve said, read further into the text.  And I know, that sounds like teacher gibberish.  But it’s not.  It’s one thing to read, and another to UNDERSTAND.  To not only identify what’s being said on the page but feel it as well and either align the words with your own life or identify the dominant ideas and see how they could provoke someone else to thought, or perhaps even action.  Write in the margin, note what you’ve identified, felt.  You’re not just reading, you’re living.  In someone else’s world, life, sight and place.
