involves skipping unimportant words like 'the' and identifying the keywords

you have to know your purpose..
Why are you reading this?
Is it for a tutorial, or just a topic for discussion?
What info are you looking for?

Why do we need to learn selective reading?
‘technical’ reading issues
it is about finding the meaning of a written text and making judgements as to its value

selective reading is a learned strategy that should be taught at a young age.
a tool for comprehension: strategic, selective, and purposeful
What is selective reading?
synonyms: choosy, particular and picky
Goodman (1998) that “Reading is a selective process involving partial use of available minimal language cues selected from the perceptual impute on the basis of the reader’s perception”.
reading to get an answer
reading only the important parts
reading for a purpose
reading for step by step
how to start?
learning in English, which may be a second language for many
puzzling over unfamiliar words and jargon
repeatedly going back over what has just been read to check understanding
reading out aloud or under the breath.
use skimming to locate a particular point
Read Selectively within texts:
BE AN ACTIVE READER: choose carefully what you will read closely.
SKIM THE TEXT whenever the author is off topic, providing supporting background or offering repetitious detail.
BE BOLD: trust your instinct in regard to what material is important and what is filler.

you are not expected to read from cove to cover
You are meant to read with a particular learning
purpose in mind
If you are clear about your purpose for reading and what it is you
want from a text before you start reading, you can then select
the most appropriate source and concentrate on the part of this
that will give you the information you seek.
read it! Don't judge a paper by your first reading
at times, a paper you struggle with most may be the most may be the one which provides the most benefit.
make notes and reflect!
Be selective!
thanks for lending your ears! ;)
