Text Complexity and Academic Language
As experts in our fields, we are familiar with the reading practices of our disciplines. Students, however, may not be. Examine the specific complexities of the texts we require (or desire) students to read. We will analyze our texts for text demands and reading purposes. We will also discuss academic language and strategies for helping our students understand and use it. Bring a copy of reading materials you use in a course. Registration is required.
