EDTR 224 - Integrating Reading


Trains instructors in the practice of guiding students in reading for transfer level courses. Initial focus will be on developing instructors’ background information about reading and learning. The course will help instructors set reading goals while identifying strengths and weaknesses in reading. Instructors will identify, develop, and integrate positive reading techniques into their courses. This model is designed to ensure that faculty have hands-on practice as well as reading guides that they can use in their classroom as they progress through the course. The course emphasizes the concept of “action-looping” which involves the application of lessons learned in this course to instructors’ transfer level courses with the overall goal of improvements in transfer level courses in terms of reading assignments and overall comprehension. This course is repeatable three times. The amount of credit awarded shall be one credit hour each time the student successfully completes the course for a maximum of four credit hours. Pass/Fail grades will be given. Prerequisite(s): None.
