What are the different purposes of reading? What do you think reading like a writer is? What is close reading and how can you practice it? Fair warning..I’ve been accused of ruining people’s mindless reading.
You’ll need to do a few things to prepare before you watch this video:
- print the note-taking outline below for this video session
- pick out a book from your collection, preferably a memoir, to use as we work our way through this section
- print out the book cover handout below the video
- pick out a passage from Educated by Tara Westover – as we go through this process, apply the principles to your passage
Get ready to read like a writer.
