This gathering of information helps the reader to have a general picture of the text. What is previewing? "Teaching is fun ." Aziz Salafi King Khalid University, KSA
  • 3. Before reading, look at the title of the text. Try to find out what the writer(s) wants to tell you. Look at the photos, illustrations, and other graphics in a text before you read. This will give you a visual idea of what the text is about. Also, read the first sentence or paragraph of a text because the writer(s) generally states the main idea of the text in the first sentence or paragraph. Another way to preview is to look at the structure of the written discourse. The structure of a letter is different from that of a newspaper article. How does it work? "Teaching is fun ."
