  3. Explorable Explanations

  4. Explorable Explanations An  active  reader  asks  questions,  considers  alternatives,  

    questions  assumptions,  and  even  questions  the   trustworthiness  of  the  author.  An  active  reader  tries  to   generalize  specific  examples,  and  devise  specific  examples   for  generalities.  An  active  reader  doesn't  passively  sponge  up   information,  but  uses  the  author's  argument  as  a   springboard  for  critical  thought  and  deep  understanding. Bret  Victor,  March  10,  2011:  http://worrydream.com/ExplorableExplanations/
