I agree using the introduction as a starting point can be key to summoning what knowledge you may know that is pertinent to the text. As basic as it sounds the introduction is there inform readers of what is to come but sometimes in it can be easy to skip over the valuable information and start looking at the body of the text.

Paying a bit more attention to direct quotes also directs you to the reference list. Taking a deeper look at the reference list can provide much more of a foundational understanding of the text and also work to create a more complete picture.

Leah great suggestion! Being able to paraphrase so that you can understand the context of the reading in your own personal way is definitely a way to engage in conversational reading. Even if your thoughts and the authors thoughts may not necessarily align word for word, there is still an added benefit to paraphrasing.
