What is
Critical
Reading?

6
Imagine!
You are browsing
your newsfeed and
you see the following
posts:
Girls more likely do
well in academics
during high school
years but boys get
ahead of them in
college.
Female teenagers
are more concerned
with their physical
appearance than
male teenagers.
If you question the validity of the
statements by asking the person
to give the basis for his/her
assertions, then you are one step
closer to becoming a critical
reader.

What is blind acceptance?

CRITICAL READING
○ involves scrutinizing any information
that you read
○ not easily believing information offered
to you by a text
○ an active process of discovery
because when you read critically, you
are not just receiving information but
also making an interaction with the
writer
12
The interaction happens when
you question the writer’s claims
and assertions and when you
comment on the writer’s ideas.

13

Read not to contradict with
and confute; nor to believe
and take for granted; nor to
find talk and discourse; but
to weigh and consider.”
-Francis Bacon, “The Essays”

14
Requirements in Critical
Thinking (Ramage, Bean, and Johnson; 2006)
 ability to pose problematic questions
 ability to analyze a problem in all its
dimensions
 ability to find, gather, and interpret data,
facts and other information relevant to the
problem
 ability to imagine alternative solutions to the
problem
 ability to analyze competing approaches
and answers
 ability to write an effective argument

Some suggested ways to help
you become a critical reader:
1. ANNOTATE WHAT YOU READ.
One of the ways to interact with the writer is to
write on the text.
√ underline, circle, highlight
words/phrases/sentences that contain
important details
√ write marginal notes (questions or
comments)
√ circle unfamiliar words
√ underline questionable ideas
16
Some suggested ways to help
you become a critical reader:
2. OUTLINE THE TEXT
You need to identify the main points
of the writer and list them down so you can
also identify the ideas that writer has raised
to support his/her stand.
√ you can just write in bullets or in numbers

17
Some suggested ways to help
you become a critical reader:
3. SUMMARIZE THE TEXT
Get the main points of then text you
are reading and write its gist in your own
words.

4. EVALUATE THE TEXT.


You question the author’s purpose and
intentions, as well as his/her assumptions in
the claims.
√ Check if the arguments are supported by
valid evidence.
