Across the Disciplines series
Copublished with the WAC Clearinghouse
“This edited volume is a great resource for anyone wishing to engage questions about how to improve college reading. . . . It deserves a wide readership among college faculty and administrators.”
"The book demonstrates how much we have to learn by looking at and reflecting on the literate lives of college students, in the composition classroom and, most importantly, beyond."
Arguing that literacy instruction is the work of all teachers, K-12 and beyond, this collection offers replicable strategies to help educators think about how and when students learn the skills of reading, synthesizing information, and drawing inferences across multiple texts. What Is College Reading? will be of interest and practical use to any educator facing the need to offer more for students as they exit their high school career and begin the journey of post-secondary education. The contributors describe work in both disciplinary and cross-institutional settings, providing a wide range of instructional approaches and strategies.
This book is also available as an open access ebook through the WAC Clearinghouse.
