Across the Disciplines series
Co-Published with CSU Open Press


 

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.
