Summer Institute: Strategies for Effective Disciplinary Reading
One of the biggest concerns faculty have about their students’ learning: students don’t read for class. Discuss the challenges posed by the reading materials and the required reading skills in college courses, what it means to “read deeply,” and how students need to read in our specific disciplines. You will identify specific complexities and demands of the texts you require (or desire) students to read, acquire strategies that help scaffold students’ ability to read like scholars, and learn how to use these strategies with students in your courses. A stipend is available for eligible participants. Registration is required.
