Reading academic texts is challenging, especially for readers who are encountering particular kinds of texts for the first time. In this workshop, three faculty members will share tips and strategies you can use to help your students engage more effectively with difficult texts. Stephanie André (English, Central Oregon CC) will describe strategies she uses in writing classes, including Writing 121. Sheri Jordan (English, Blue Mountain CC) will describe the “Reading Apprenticeship” framework and how it supports reading across all disciplinary areas. Finally, Shawn Massoni (Microbiology, OSU) will describe how he uses journal clubs in science classes.
