What the strategies involved in dealing with Advance Reading Comprehension?

Reading comprehension is all about concision and providing it simplicity in one's mind.

Strategies Involved In Advance Reading Comprehension

  • Self-questioning: Read the passage and start questioning yourself to understand the text in a better manner. These self-formulated questions involve the reader actively with the text.

  • Skimming: It is a sort of cursory glance with the text in order to draw a general impression of the content of the passage. One must pay heed to the keywords in the given passage.

  • Scanning: Glancing the passage for specific details like numerical data, proper nouns, etc, helps in a detailed evaluation.

  • Predicting: Associating whatever prior knowledge one has of the similar topic, helps one to predict what could be the central idea of the given passage.

  • Connecting: It refers to the method of correlating with the author's opinion to form a strong argument for interpretation.

  • Comparing: It involves comparison of self-opinion and author 's opinion and is helpful to draw some kind of similarities or dissimilarities.

  • Inference: It involves analyzing the portion of the text that has not been explicitly opened in front of us.

  • Interpretation: On the basis of several identities like Assumptions, predictions, and conclusions based on the former two, we draw some interpretations but they may or may not be correct.

  • Synthesize: All the information that we have taken from a variety of sources will be brought together in order to get a clearer idea.

  • Determine the Importance of Various Parts of Passage: Know which phrase in which paragraph is important from the point of view of summarising later.

Solving an advance reading comprehension question in the examinations is not everyone's cup of tea. The above strategies might help in order to deal any question related to it easily.
