The Read/Write Connection PLC - Fall 2019 registration
Dr. Jill Parrott & Dr. Eileen Shanahan
Meeting Time: Wednesdays at 11:15 am
Meeting Location: Faculty Center for Teaching & Learning (FCT&L)
Have you ever thought to yourself “My students are writing this research paper, but are they really getting it?,” or “I assign this great reading, but when I ask them to write about how they’d apply the ideas, they seem confused”? This Quality Enhancement Plan-sponsored professional learning community will provide tools to discuss academic purposes for including assignments that bring together reading and writing and will stress practical approaches for teaching students to “read like writers.” The Read/Write Connection PLC will ask whether our traditional writing assignments lead to a shallow understanding of disciplinary reading and whether “emphasizing the intellectual processes of reading, including the role genre plays in understanding” can better meet the learning goals we have for our students and their needs for success in their academic programs and careers (Manarin, Carey, Rathburn, and Ryland 64).
DEEP Course Connections: Critical Reading
Learning Threads: Pedagogy
Texts and Resources: Critical Reading in Higher Education by Manarin, Carey, Rathburn, and Ryland
