Your students can read their textbooks. But do they understand what they read? Research indicates that significant numbers of college students are often “unskilled and unaware.” The good news is that faculty can more easily help their students to become more effective readers and comprehenders once they understand the metacognitive skills and strategies involved in the process of reading comprehension. In this workshop, you will have an opportunity to (a) try a tool for assessing your students’ metacognitive awareness of reading strategies, and (b) use insights gained to help them improve their reading comprehension performance.
