They did the reading…or did they? This common question presents itself to teaching assistants in classrooms across the disciplines. Students come to class unprepared to work with the readings. Why? Often, reading at university is challenging for our students. This workshop will examine the underlying barriers to successful reading in the undergraduate classroom. We will explore concrete strategies for supporting reading both inside and outside the classroom, and discuss methods to integrate reading strategies that promote comprehension through tutorials.

*This session can count as “Skill Development: Critical Reading and Reflection” tutorial training
