|Workshop:||Fitting Reading Skills Into Your Course|
|Presented by:||Amanda Miller|
|Time:||Wednesday, January 11 10:15 am|
|Max number of participants:||25|
Are your students doing the reading? If they do, do they really understand it? Do they demonstrate a deep understanding of their course materials? If the answer is no (or even maybe!), come discuss techniques and strategies for integrating literacy skills into your content-heavy course. Based on the online course "Introduction to the Reading Apprenticeship Framework for Community College STEM Faculty," we will explore metacognition, reading strategies, and how to get students to buy into the importance of literacy. This workshop will be an interactive discussion with the primary goal of providing specific, workable solutions to the reading problems that plague our students-- without taking too much time from your content.
