Reading and note taking

One way of approaching a new piece of reading is to break it down into manageable chunks and try to assimilate things bit by bit. There is a close correlation here between your reading and your note taking, and this feeds directly into your writing; therefore at this point we are going to deal with these two things together.

The trouble is that I read what I have to read and then end up with these copious notes and don't know how to incorporate them into my essay.

This is a familiar cry from students. One of the reasons why so many students feel this way is that they do not really know 'why' or more importantly 'how' they are reading and therefore their notes reflect this. In the next activity you will begin to tackle this problem.
