Critical thinking and reading
Critical thinking and reading are processes that take time to develop. When you start a new topic, you need basic information to understand it. Ask simple questions: What/When/Who/Where?
As you start to understand the topic, ask more in-depth questions: Why/How/What if/So what/What next?
