Contributor’s comments on the use of this resource:
The Three Domains of Critical Reading is a framework to understand what is involved in reading at university in terms of critical analysis and evaluation. It can be used in 1-2-1 or lecture formats to explain the process, be used as a handout to act as a template for note-taking, or as a workshop activity, with students either discussing what questions would be appropriate, or applying it to a set of extracts. It can be used with dissertation students (UG3 or PGT) and in a simpler version, could be used with UG1 in a very scaffolded session.
