Critical reading is the process of reading texts closely, analyzing the author’s intent, meaning, and message to comprehend the given text accurately.Critical Reading is essential in trying to understand any piece of text.
This can be tricky at times, since many literary devices are usually used such as metaphors and hyperboles.
Here at the academy, we believe that in order for students to learn fully, they must learn to use critical thinking. To encourage this, we provide short answer questions over the often use of multiple choice questions, in order to help them understand how answers are derived.
