Reading is a complex process rather than a simple, straightforward act of lifting words off the page.
The reader comprehends a text not just by understanding
the sentences but also by connecting those sentences to ideas, memories, and knowledge suggested by those words.
It involves listening to the voice of the writer as well as one’s own voice and those that the reader has previously
encountered outside the text.
Effective reading requires actively applying certain reading skills, such as previewing the title and headings or
bringing oneself back to the text when distracted. Learning these skills will help you get the most out of a reading and
improve your learning.
