Literal
A basic eliment of text. An example for a literal text would be, "The cat ran away."
Inerpretive
Many possible meanings within the text. An example of interpreting a text would be, "The cat ran away" then you would as yourself, "What did the cat run away from?" In doing this you are allowing yourself to look in between the lines of the origional literal text. If you come across a word in a litteral text that you are unfimiliar with, you should research it.
Critical/Analytical Context
This means looking very closely at the detail and not taking what you read or hear for granted.
•Evaluate how far materials are appropriate, and up-to-date.
•Evaluate how far the evidence or examples used in materials really proves the point that the author claims.
•To weigh up opinions, arguments or solutions against appropriate criteria.
•To think a line of reasoning through to its logical conclusion.
•Check for hidden bias or hidden assumptions.
•Check whether the evidence and argument really support the conclusions
