The purpose of this strategy is to explore a text deeply in light of one’s own values and intentions. It generates a discussion about a controversial reading by asking: What assumptions does the author of the text hold? What do you agree with the text? What do you want to argue within the text? What parts of the text do you want to aspire to (or act upon)?
