Reading Metacognitively

You try every time to make connections with another subject.

Zettelkasten, May 29, 2020
## Notes - You read actively, not passively. - You constantly ask questions to yourself about what you're reading. - "Can I explain it to a 12 years old child?" - "Can I associate this with some other subject?" - "How can this can be applied to my life?" - You try every time to make connections with another subject. - Slows down your speed reading because you need more time to engage with the material. - You expand your knowledge base because you send more information to your [long-term memory](/zettel/long-term-memory). ## Questions - How can I know that I'm reading/studying metacognitively? - Which other areas besides reading can I perform metacognitively? ## References - [Slow-Reading is the New Deep Learning](https://medium.com/better-humans/slow-reading-is-the-new-deep-learning-452f179c0289) ## Backlinks - [The Feynman Technique](/zettel/the-feynman-technique)
