The Critical Reader

We often think of a critical person as a negative person. someone who is always finding fault. always trying to think of something nasty to say. But when it comes to reading and understanding what is being said the critical reader is one who has a better understanding of what he/she reads. She/he approaches reading as a chance to learn not just to receive indoctrination. The Critical Reader is one who asks questions. He/she doesn't just question the answers but also questions the questions. Here are some questions that may come to mind among others You may want to just read through the artical quickly the first time to get a general feel for where it is going and then come back to ask questions the second time. As you practice reading critically you will find a method and a pace that works best for you.
