How do I get my students to do the reading...and what do I do when they've read?

It’s a question for the ages: Why won’t they do the reading?!? While it’s easy to write it off as laziness or apathy, the truth is that the explanation isn’t always that simple. In some cases students aren’t well-prepared for college-level reading assignments, and sometimes they just don’t see how doing the reading helps them learn. The good news is that there are ways not only to ensure that they read, but also to help them process the content effectively in class. This workshop will demonstrate strategies for accountability and for in-class task design to show students why doing the reading matters.
