The concept of comprehension and retention 

Reading comprehension skill is often assumed by sociology instructors, yet many college students seem to have marginal reading comprehension skills, which may explain why less than half of them are actually doing the reading.  Sanctions that force students to either read or to pay a price are based on a rational choice model of behaviour—a perspective that many students seem to bring with them.  However, deep reading—reading for long-term retention of the material and for comprehension at a level that can be perspective-transforming—involves constructing meaning as one reads. Students need help developing reading strategies that enhance this process. 

Reading skills span a spectrum from the lower-order skills of remembering (retention) and understanding (comprehension) to higher-order skills of analysing and evaluating. This is not to say that retention and comprehension are unimportant. Rather, they are necessary in becoming a critical reader and thinker. After all, if you do not comprehend a text, how can you apply the information in your own research or profession? To develop your skills then, you should build a strong foundation in reading retention and comprehension.
