In this video, literacy educator Kate Nonesuch explains a technique to help adult learners get more out of their reading.
When a person reads a text, some of the information is right there on the page, she points out. Other information emerges because the person thinks about the text and questions its meaning.
In the video, she begins to read aloud a story about the world’s biggest motorcycle, pausing to voice her questions about the material. For instance, she wonders why someone would want to build a giant motorcycle and asks questions about the picture that illustrates the story.
