Prepare: Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, watch the Ashford University Library’s Scholarly & Popular Resources (Links to an external site.) video. Then visit the Week 3 section of the GEN 104 LibGuide in the library. You will find a list of articles grouped in sets. Each article in the set will cover the same topic but from a different source. For instance, one article may come from a popular magazine while the other comes from an academic journal. Browse through the sets of articles and choose one set to read and write about.
Consider your experience in reading each article. For instance, think about whether any of the articles was more difficult to read than the others, which ones were more engaging, and what you did to make sure you read and understand the entire group of articles.
In at least 250 words, address the following:
- Describe which set of articles you read and have chosen to write about. Why did you choose that set? Which other sets did you browse through?
- Explain which strategy you used for each article in the set and why you choose that strategy.
- Discuss any changes you made in your approach to reading these articles—we often have to change the way we read based on what it is we are reading.
- Identify which article of the set was most difficult to read and explain why.
