Strategy #1: Read with a Purpose
“Brainology” by Carol Dweck
When we read with a purpose, we figure out why we are reading a text and focus on reading from that
perspective. We do this all day long as we read throughout our daily lives, including when we read emails,
articles online, and even texts such as menus and instruction manuals. When you figure out your purpose for
reading a text in any class, try to move beyond “because it was assigned to me,” and think about why the
instructor assigned it. That is, think about how it connects to what you have already read in the class, the
assignments you will complete based on that text, and the other readings you will complete in the class. This
helps us begin reading the text with some ideas and expectations about the text, but we must remember that
these predictions can change as we read through the text.
Complete before reading:
1. Why do you think this reading has been assigned?
2. This article is one of your reading assignments for Essay 1. With this in mind, explain what you think
you need to get from this reading to be successful.
3. Are there any other strategies you might need to use (i.e., taking notes, annotating) to achieve your
purpose in reading? Why?
Complete after reading:
1. How did thinking about your purpose change the way you read this text? What do you think you did
differently as a result?
2. When is it important to use this reading strategy? When might it not be that necessary or important?
