Tips to Remember

  • Try to grasp the main idea and how the different pieces of information are connected. 
  • Determine why specific information is mentioned. Is it to provide background information, give examples, support an argument, or explain a concept?
  • Recognize Transition Words and Phrases. These words signal shifts in the structure and help you understand the flow of ideas.
  • Think about how different pieces of information relate to one another. Are they supporting a common theme, contrasting with each other, or presenting a cause-and-effect relationship?
  • Pay attention to the context provided by the questions. Sometimes, the specific focus of the organization question may guide you in identifying how the information is structured.
