Explai Importance of Pre-reading

Explain the Importance of Pre-reading


By now, you should have access to your book choice for our class. This week I want to you to get comfortable with the text and put a plan together for how you are going to tackle the reading.

To support what you have learned about the importance of pre-reading as part of your reading process that we covered, I want you to submit at least a 150 words of Pre-Reading.

Some questions you might ask yourself as you are working through the process might be:

  • Have you heard something about the text or its author?
  • Has a classmate or a friend told you something about it?
  • Have you seen a film or TV show related to it?
  • What are your preconceptions of the text?
  • Have you already read it before? If so, what was your experience with it?
  • What does the title lead you to expect?
  • What do you think the title means before knowing anything of the work itself?
  • What is its genre?
  • What expectations do you have based on the cover? (Color, font, images)
  • Have you read something similar or on the same topic before?
  • How much do you know about the topic already?

For those of you who are unfamiliar or would like to refresh your understanding of genre, this is fantastic video that breaks down what it is.
