Empirical research into the best strategies that allow reading of non-fictional texts has grown in popularity over the past century. With the advent of systematic research and empirical studies, it has been essential that readers learn to critically interpret and evaluate pieces of writing to determine the strengths and weaknesses of a piece, as well as its overall purpose and supposed implications (Beers, 2000). In general, reading is a process that is comprised of three general phases. 1) before-. 2) during-, and 3) after-reading. Recognition of this process allows a reader to develop their own personal strategies that align with goal outcomes of each phase. In this way, readers can be assured that they will read more effectively, deeply, and meaningfully (Fairbrain, 2000). As such, by employing strategies that address each phase in a specific way the reader is able to cultivate a critical skill of self-conscious reading. Also, a reader is better able to understand that a variety of reading techniques are required in order to understand and actively engage with a text.

The implications of presented reading strategies for teaching practice will be outlined, and recommendations made for implication within the classroom. Finally, a conclusion shall synthesize the main points of the paper to illustrate the critical benefit of reading strategies for student understanding and conceptualization of non-fictional texts.

The before-reading phase is where the reader determines within themselves the purpose of reading the text and develops a tentative plan as to how to approach the reading endeavor (Beers, 2000). It is suggested that before a reader begins on a text that they take the time to survey the material so as to get an overall feel for the material, before attempting to tackle link the details (Fairbrain, 2000). The first step suggested by Fairbrain is to understand the title of the article or text to be read. This requires careful reading to identify the keywords used. For example “definition”, “effect”, “review”, “comparison” or “analysis” (Duffy et al., 1987).
