Reading Comprehension

article link:

This is an interesting article about some scientific researchers that have made bandages out of liquids. When you are reading the article, you should keep two things in mind.

1.) What is the main point of the article?
2.) What are the supporting details?

Improving your reading comprehension can be accomplished by first answering what is the main point of the article. In this article the main point of the article is the introduction of liquid bandages. The supporting details are additional information about the bandages.

An additonal point to consider is not knowing certain vocabulary. You should not let yourself get caught up in the vocabulary. In the next post I will discuss vocabulary in context, which is the ability to guess the meaning of unknown words from the way they are used in a sentence.

Enjoy your weekend,
