• Text Analysis

    Once the student has gathered information resources, it is now time to make sense of the text in relation to what one already knows, use analytical skills to make inferences, interpret data, organize ideas, and make connections. Critical analysis of information gathered requires application of critical reading skills. Sorting and classifying; sifting information; presenting a coherent argument; drawing conclusions; and summarizing. Students may find that they have not gathered sufficient information through this analysis and assured that this reflection is part of the process. Adapting information seeking strategies is to be encouraged as students begin to find new meaning from their reading.
