Although a large number of students are challenged to read the book, surely there is a greater number of people who have problems reading the lecture reading lesson. The reading reading lesson helps us to read the book as easily as possible and better prepare the lesson and prepare for answering the school.

A large number of lecture titles have extensive content, so our journal will help us not to forget the essential things. In the reading diary, we write a short description of the action, everything we consider essential, and it belongs to the group of details and its feelings, thinking about events and characters, and observations about the work.

Lecture reading log

  1. An Author’s Note

Here, write the most important information about the writer’s life, about his education, his work, and the time he wrote. Try to find some interesting or detailed information that the author stands out.

  1. Type of literary work

At the beginning it is important to determine the type of literary work. So whether it’s a song, a novel, a fairy tale or maybe a story.

  1. Idea and theme of the work

Determine the subject of the work and write it in one sentence. So the theme is what the book is about and is usually an extended title of the work.

The idea of ​​a work is the message the author wants to convey, his main thought. We will find an idea of ​​action or character characterization.

  1. Short content

With regard to the read book and notes during the reading, we will determine the action fable (introduction, plot, peak, breakdown and end of the action). Then briefly describe the action. Make sure the content is interesting and you mention everything important, distinctly important from the inexhaustible. Do not write unnecessary and irrelevant things.

  1. Place and time of action

The place and time of action must always be included in the lecture. Even if it is an indefinite time and place of action, it is important to mention it.

  1. Characters (main and secondary) and character analysis

List all the characters and put them into main and secondary categories. Characters determine the action and through them the author tells their thoughts. The main character is the actuator of the action and around it the whole action is taking place. Secondary characters are usually in some relationship with the main character and are complementary to the action.

Analyzing characters means describing their appearance, their thinking, feelings, and attitudes.

  1. Language and style

It is important for the lecture to know the language in which the author wrote the work. It is important to focus on whether the language is original, rich and picturesque, whether it is modern or has the author used a lot of anarchists (outdated words). Do the simple and short sentences prevail in the work or are complex and lengthy that require good concentration during reading.

As for the style, answer the question whether there is a dose of humor about it or a serious part of it. Conclude what storytelling is, whether it is smooth and uniform or the author often turns from the main subject to describe yet another action. Notice if the author’s comments are in the works and the work consists of pure action. Each author has his writing style, and answers to these questions will reveal what style he is doing.

All this is important to determine the language and style of a literary work.

Use these guidelines to read the lesson and write your reading diary as all of these points will help you write the lecture well.
