Supporting the Development of Students’ Critical Reading Skills


Dr. Elina Salminen, Assistant Director for Educational Development

  • 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
  • via Zoom

Event Description

Undergraduate students often face an uphill battle as they learn to recognize, read, and join disciplinary conversations. Central to this difficulty is the fact that the challenges and expectations associated with reading in one discipline may be very different than those they face in another. In this workshop, participants will explore disciplinary reading practices, consider particular challenges that students face in reading for their courses, and discover strategies for helping students build strong critical reading skills.
