Today’s learners must acquire the skills needed to read challenging discipline specific content. This workshop will provide an overview of the factors that impact a learner’s ability to read and comprehend text.  It will address the often heard comment “I read it. I just don’t remember it.” Several before, during, and after reading strategies that require readers to engage meaningfully with a text will be presented.  Finally, participants will explore the connection between reading and writing giving consideration to models that allow students to process new learning by capturing their thinking as they develop their writing skills.
