Leading with Reading: Strategic Instruction to Deepen Students’ Understanding of Complex Texts

Presented By: Suzanne Lane, PhD, Director, Writing Across the Curriculum, MIT

Successful academic inquiry begins with careful and thoughtful reading, and students often struggle with this initial stage of learning.  Because reading primarily happens individually and outside of the classroom, it can be difficult to teach students more advanced reading strategies appropriate for engaging theoretical or complex texts.  This workshop will identify different reading strategies for different genres, and focus on exercises and tools that can be used to deepen students’ attention to and understanding of complex texts, including tools available for working with online texts. 

Participation in this workshop is limited to registered participants only. All registered participants are required to attend the entire workshop.

Breakfast will be available at 8:30am. Lunch will be provided at the end of the workshop. If you have any specific dietary needs, please do let us know.

Printouts of presentation slides are available upon request.
