Designing Reading Assignments for Comprehension & Engagement
January 29 @ 3:40 pm - 5:00 pm CST
Ever wondered if students are actually doing their assigned reading? Or how well they are understanding the reading? “Reading is not a timeless, universal capability. Advanced literacy is a specific intellectual skill and social habit” (Gioia, 2005); it is also increasingly differentiated by discipline in college courses. This session will explore key text analysis and reading comprehension tools faculty in all disciplines can use to design more impactful reading assignments for students.
