Federalist Text Analysis

Even though I have not finished reading “The Federalist Paper,” I still learn a lot about the foundation of American government and also about myself as a learner during the process. I know that I am more of a visual learner than an auditory learner, but I usually get bored really quickly whenever I read a long text that is full of information or does not have any pictures or graphs. So instead of reading “The Federalist Paper” in one go, I break it down into sections and then use a highlighter to highlight important facts and take notes as I go. These learning tips are not new, but I always find them helpful when I need to analyze the text later on. I also tend to get lost a lot when I read and end up skimming and skipping throughout the text. …show more content…
I know that I am more of a visual learner than an auditory learner, but I usually get bored really quickly whenever I read a long text that is full of information or does not have any pictures or graphs. So instead of reading “The Federalist Paper” in one go, I break it down into sections and then use a highlighter to highlight important facts and take notes as I go. These learning tips are not new, but I always find them helpful when I need to analyze the text later on. I also tend to get lost a lot when I read and end up skimming and skipping throughout the text. To prevent this from happening, I often put my cell phone, which is my main distraction, away or on silence and give myself time to sit down and actually read the text. This helps focus and understand the text better. I am not a native English speaker, so there are many words that I do not know. In the past, I used to just brush through them or tried to guess their meanings, but now, I always look them up in the dictionary and write their definitions down. Not only this method helps me build my vocabulary, it also enhances my understanding of the text. I also learn to read around the text (like reading the title, heading, caption, etc.) before actually reading the text itself. I do not know about other people, but I always skip them whenever I read books or any other forms of text. I used to think that they are not important, and I can “save” myself some time if I skip them. But I realize that it was a big mistake because by reading the context first, I can predict what the text might be about, the purpose of the text, and so on. This method is super helpful in improving my comprehension because I can prepare myself and connect to some of my prior knowledge about the topic that I am about to
