This article suggests that through regular television watching students have grown accustomed to a more passive absorption of information, making them more likely to "skim" than truly read. It also includes some great tips on learning to create an "internal dialogue" with the text.and suggests ways to enhance and deepen a student's reading experience.

In the section about active reading, I realized how very true that might be. I feel the more I watch TV, the harder it is to concentrate on my reading. Even in small periods of time, like if I watch TV in the morning, I do not do so well keeping up with my reading, but if I have had a productive day without TV it seems I can understand my reading material better.
