Careful Reading 1
- Page ID
Today computers and on-line resources can help us to collect a lot of information in a very short time. You can find "answers" in a very short time, but the question is whether you understand them. I bet many of you are now making beautiful presentations by collecting information from the Internet even when you do not understand the information. The most important thing is that you make sense of what you find.
An analogy is that the average person now eats some good food but mostly junk food; nutritionists say the general public is getting fatter because of mindless eating. Some students are getting work done, but fail because of mindless reading; they do not think while they read.
I need you to think about what you find and share that with other students in the class so we can all learn.
