Top tips this week.

  • Keep a record of your first reading – what you think matters.

  • Pay close attention to the words on the page and work with them to substantiate your readings.

  • Read beyond the text – criticism and context, for example.

  • Reflect on the significance of the points that you are making

  • Take time – read and re-read; think and re-think
