Academic Reading Skills
Academic reading is an active process of reading where the reader interacts with a text through taking notes, making connections between the text through what they already know and what other texts have said, and asking critical questions about the content they read. Academic reading involves a multi-faceted approach of engagement where the reader uses a range of reading strategies (prediction, surveying, skimming, scanning, analysis, reading in detail and summarising) to determine the scope and relevance of a piece and deciding which parts should be read in more depth (Wilson, 2022).
