"Active Reading, Part Two"

"Reading as a Dialogue"

October 23, 2012 - 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm (already occurred)

This workshop will introduce and offer you the opportunity to practice strategies that will help you not only to better understand what you read but also to have something insightful to say about it in class. We will also practice varying-- and increasing --our reading speed (not by speed-reading). During the workshop, you will apply the strategies we discuss to readings for your own classes, so please bring a couple of texts (articles or books) you have yet to read. By the end of the workshop, you may be readier for class than you’ve ever been! The workshop will be taught by Kristen Brookes, senior writing associate.
