I’ve been reminded of the BUG method for reading assignment questions (Price & Maier, 2007):

Box the action word

Underline the key (important) words

Glance back (check that you have read it correctly).

For example:

Discuss what you understand by the term dyslexia by reference to a critical review of research literature.

Box the word ‘discuss’ – that’s what you have to do.

Underline ‘dyslexia’ – that’s what you are talking about.

Glance back over question to make sure that you know what other information you need. Which of it is also important?
