Reading Critically

The purpose of critical reading is not to find fault, but to assess the strength of the evidence and any arguments. Reading critically requires you to complete a thorough reading of a text and analyse, question and evaluate what you’re reading. Critical readers:

  • are honest with themselves
  • ask questions
  • seek to overcome confusion
  • make judgments based on evidence
  • look for connections between topics
  • resist manipulation
  • are intellectually independent.
