Question and answer
How can i retain wat i read
Reading is important. But, the next step is making sure that you remember what you've read! Memory is sometimes a tricky thing. You may have just read the text, and the concepts and ideas of the poem or novel may not "catch" on... [ The images may just fly right out of your head. Here are a few tricks for remembering what you read. Difficulty: Easy Time Required: Varies Here's How: What's your motivation? Do you want to read the poem or book, or are you only reading it because it's assigned. Even if your reading is required, you may discover something about the author or text that
will interest you. What do you know about the text? If you have a choice between texts to read, perhaps another work of literature will offer more of an enticement, and will be of more interest to you. Are you sleeping? If you aren't getting enough sleep, you probably won't be able to concentrate on what you're reading. In fact, you'll probably fall asleep while you read. If you want to remember what you read, make sure that you've had enough sleep before you start. Or, if you're like most students (and you're burning the midnight oil), read when you are most alert. And, consider the possibility of drinking a cup of coffee or tea while you read. Coffee and reading seem to go together anyway... Are you confused? If the plot, characters, or word usage is confusing for you, you likely won't be able to remember what you read. It's a bit like reading a foreign language. If you don't understand what you're reading, why would you remember it? The ideas, concepts, plot, characters- everything just slips away. But, there area a few things you can do... Use a dictionary; look up the difficult words. ]
