Using an Engish/English Dictionary
Find out how to look up words in an English/English dictionary. Learn the parts of a dictionary entry, and learn to choose the correct definition for a word when many definitions are given.
Finding the Main Idea
Learn how to find the main idea in a paragraph in English. You will learn where the main idea is most likely found, and you will learn how to state the main idea of a paragraph in your own words. Later in the semester, you will learn to state the main idea of an entire article (the thesis).
Identifying Supporting Details
Learn how to locate and identify the most important ideas in a paragraph that explain or "support" the main idea. Learn basic outline formatting in English, and learn to show the relationship among the main idea and the supporting details of a paragraph.
Word Attack:  Prefixes, Roots, Suffixes, and Context Clues
Learn to guess the meaning of words that you don't know by using clues in the writing. Use prefixes, roots and suffixes. Break words into parts to guess their meanings.   Learn to use the five types of context clues to guess the meanings of words that are important to understand in a paragraph or article.
Drawing Inferences/Distinguishing Facts from Opinions
Learn to draw inferences, to make conclusions based on the  information that the writer gives you.  This is called "reading between the lines" and it takes quite a lot of practice to do it well. Learn to tell the difference between facts and opinions.
Figurative Language/Figures of Speech
Some words or expressions mean just what they say, but others have to be understood as an entire expression. For example, many idioms in English are figurative. You have to understand the whole expression to understand the idiom.  Figures of Speech are types of figurative language that give the reader a mental  image of what the writer is describing.
Putting It All Together
Learn to use all of these skills in understanding medium length and long articles such as those you will read in AmLa 54 and in your other college courses. Learn to answer general comprehension questions and how to share insights that you have gained from reading and understanding an article.
