Transcript of Marking Up a Texts Using Reading Strategies

Marking up a text is an excellent way of trying to understand what a passage or story says. It is also a helpful tool that helps you use reading strategies such as predicting, summarizing, making connections and visualizing. Sometimes when we read we find our minds drifting or we don't take the time to think about what we are reading. By using markups and reading strategies we remind ourselves to stay active and alert while reading. We ask ourselves questions about the text and relate it to things from our own lives. In addition markups help our comprehension of a text and give us visual references when we are trying to recall important points. There is a lot that a reader can get from a book or from reading a text. The use of a markup is one of the salient pointers that a reader needs to use for effective reading. The reasons why the reader should take note of what interest them or questions that they may be asking themselves when reading a particular text are plentiful.
There is no right or wrong way to mark up a text. Some of the marks many people use are underlining, circling, using punctuation like question marks and writing notes in the margin. The important thing is to develop your own style and connect your markups to reading strategies. Marking Up A Text

2.Question- ask yourself why people do things, what they are thinking, what will happen next

6.Summarize- stop and retell sections of the story to yourself. Make sure your understanding what is happening. Markups 1.Underlining- You can use underlining for most reading strategies

2.Punctuation- use question marks (?) when you don't understand something or a star (*) when there is a point you want remember

3.Circling-when there is a word or section you don't understand

5. Create your own marks- develop your own style for marking up a text For starters, marking up a book makes it easier to find important details and points that one may have to take into consideration to understand the core meaning of the text. Mark ups are also a great tool to keep track of the reading strategies that you use during a reading. It may be an interesting fact that has been highlighted by the author or it may just be something that the reader likes, when marked up it makes the reader be able to recall it with ease. Furthermore, it makes that marked passage or text easy to find when looked for in the future. this article has some good ideas about what to do while reading. I remember that we used markups in high school I think this means the same thing as understanding because so far this article is talking about ways of understanding texts better Connection Visulaize Important info Context Clues Summarizing I don't know this word or what it means so I'll look it up
