We'll talk early on about some strategies for reading effectively — and taking notes about what you read (very important to do!).
For now, peruse these excellent guides for perfecting your university-level reading process:
— "Advice for Students: How to Read Like a Scholar"
— "How to Read in College"
— "Critical Reading in the Social Sciences"
Participation! Use the comments here to post helpful examples and tips from your reading process, things you've learned by experience thus far. Feel free to include screenshots of annotated pages, notes, etc.
