Before you read, set a PURPOSE, or REASON, for reading.
Step 1: For Example, Your PURPOSE May Be

*To be entertained
Step 2: In Order to Set a Purpose
*Preview the text to get a general idea of what it is about

*Then set your purpose
Step 3: Ask and Answer Questions
*Literal Questions has factual answers
*Interpretive Questions ask you to go beyond the information in the text. You connect what you read with what you know to make judgment. (Usually, they begin with How? Or Why?)
*Evaluative Questions ask you to make judgement
