Undergraduate students often face an uphill battle as they learn to recognize, read, and join disciplinary conversations. Central to this difficulty is the fact that the challenges and expectations associated with reading in one discipline may be very different than those they face in another. This workshop will discuss disciplinary reading practices, provide a space to think about the particular challenges that students face in reading for your classes, and offer strategies for helping students to learn how to read well in your discipline.
