Identify the most important points or main ideas. Add details from the text that support the main idea. (Like a summary).
What is the author trying to tell you? What is most important? Ask things like, Who? What? When? Where? How? and Why?
Combining what you read and what you know outside of the text (personal experiences) to help you understand.
Put together clues from the text with what you already know to figure out what the author means. Example: she helped an older woman cross the street, I know that is a nice gesture. And so I think she is a nice person.
Combining what you read or learned and putting it together like a puzzle to form a new idea.
