Critical reading

Critical reading

Critical reading involves comprehension, analysis and evaluation. First summarise the text in your own words and then consider:

  • author’s position
  • tone
  • persuasive techniques
  • intended audience
  • evidence provided
  • relevance of examples
  • opposing arguments
  • alternative conclusions
  • connections/differences to other texts
  • is anything missing?
