  1. Identify topic sentences and the main idea of paragraphs.
  2. Distinguish between general and specific ideas.
  3. Identify the connectors (however, moreover, thus, etc) to see how they link ideas within the text.
  4. Check whether or not predictions and guesses are confirmed.
  5. Skim/scan a text for specific information.
  6. Answer literal and inferential question
