The Steps of Reading Analysis
The task of reading without a critical assessment of the text is worthless and invaluable. It is essential to analyze the text that the reader is reading for his understanding and betterment. The reader should be skillful enough to carefully read the passages. Critical evaluation of a text requires some techniques that the reader has to keep in mind while reading. Listed below are a few important steps that are required to be followed by a reader.
Carefully Read the Text
The first and foremost important step of text analyzation is to read every written aspect of the paper. Read the content carefully and mark the crucial points. Try to spend more time reading the text and revise it again if needed.
Use a Dictionary
Keeping a dictionary while reading is a must for any reader. To analyze the text, the first step is to clearly understand the text. There are expressions in the text the reader is unaware of. To understand, the reader should consult a dictionary.
Critically Evaluate the Author's Purpose and Language
If the reader has carefully read the passage, then the reader will not find any difficulty in getting the purpose of the writer's work. Try to find the reason why the author has written the specific type of work or what was his inspiration. The reader will be able to analyze the language of the author once he has read the text. Look for the literary devices that the writer has used. Find what type of emotions and feelings the writer is conveying through his use of language.
Taking notes is necessary while reading. Notes help readers to quickly go through the text again without wasting any time. Write the relevant questions and points in the notes and place them close to the text that you are reading.
