Three Main Terms: (levels of comprehension)
Literal, Interpretive, Critical / Analytical

As humans, we occupy an abstract dimension and a concrete dimension in our minds.
Abstract – ideas in your head
Concrete- getting your ideas from your head to someone else’s

- Most basic understanding of the concrete dimension
- Ability to read and understand the basics

- Asking the right question to a statement.
- Understanding the meaning of what you’re reading.
- Looks at the entire message to figure out the meaning.
- Looking at the possibilities of what something means.
- Reading slowly helps in understanding or learning something you didn’t know.

Critical / Analytical :
- Finding the meaning of something and the message the author was trying to give.
- The context.

Things to Remember / Facts:
- Look up the words you don’t know.
- Language depends on prior knowledge, the things we know prior to reading or hearing something.
- Idiom – redefining a word or words, slang. Ex: ‘cool’ or ‘slinging the sods’
