Dr. Bill Obrien’s Virtual Civics, Tuesday 21, April 2020

Dr. Adam Garfinkle and Mortimer J. Adler were discussed on today’s program with regard to the subject of Deep reading. A process by which the reader’s comprehension level of understanding what the writer meant in the text is digested and processed to form a solid conclusion. This is in stark contrast to a superficial reader’s comprehensive ability to form a cohesive thought process. This is where the reader is only skimming the text and not fully comprehending the information. An apparent problem that continues to plague us through out history.
