Episode Details

In this program, writing professionals explain ways to read critically. This program describes methods for reading and understanding challenging college textbooks, no matter what the subject. To "own" the words in a dense text, writers can argue with some of the author's ideas, agree with others, then synthesize new ideas by summarizing and paraphrasing the author's words.
