    1. Some ideas for reading selectively and quickly

      Initially don't be afraid to skim through a book or article very quickly. This is often the best way to pick up the gist of a piece of work. However, you do need to have a question to be answered in mind for this to work effectively.

       

      ·         Think about what objectives you have for this particular reading.

      ·         Decide what are the 4 most essential ideas in the piece of reading.

      ·         Argue in your mind with some of the ideas contained in the papers.

      ·         Look for underlying assumptions.

      ·         Look for alternative explanations for results.

      ·         Compare with other authors.

      ·         Look for flaws in the research design.

      ·         Compare the ideas with your own ideas based on your own experience.

      ·         Think how the ideas relate to other ideas from your reading or from other modules.

       

      Don't forget that the most recent research and ideas will be in journals. Newspapers and on-line newspaper web sites, such as the Times Educational Supplement, are good places to go to pick up current issues and debates that can then be followed up through reference to the research journals. It is not a good idea to rely on journalism alone, no matter how proficient. You need to use a range of sources and be able to show that your arguments are based on evidence.
