  11. 12. The skill lesson I worked on today was Active reading. One thing I understand better is what active reading really is. This skill will help me a better reader because I will understand what I’m reading better. I am going to remember how to use this skill by stopping and asking my-self questions about what I’m reading. One piece of advice I would give to someone working with this skill is to think outside the box. In order to improve I will need to stop and think about what will happen next in the story. One more thing I want you to know is asking your self questions will help you understand what you’re reading. Skill Lesson Frame
