Video: Reading Comprehension for Pagans

Like any other community, Paganism suffers from Discourse™. A lot of the time, problems in Pagan spaces can be avoided through careful reading and critical engagement. In this video, I talk through some of the problems that I see frequently in Pagan conversations, and I talk about the importance of some foundational critical reading skills:

  1. Making sure that contributions to online discussions are on-topic
  2. Reacting to what people actually say, rather than what we think they mean
  3. Checking the credibility of people making claims, and backing those claims up by looking at their sources
