Mike Kasprzak, TATP Curriculum Developer
Kathleen Ogden, TATP Humanities Trainer

In this training session, we will discuss strategies to encourage students to engage in both critical reading and reflection. We will address the challenge of unprepared students through examining underlying barriers to successful reading in the undergraduate classroom. TAs in this session will explore concrete strategies for supporting reading both inside and outside the classroom, and discuss methods for integrating reading strategies that promote deep learning and comprehension throughout tutorials.
