Are you a university or high school student and...
Without strategies that are university and high school level, it can be difficult to learn the content of required reading.
Reading for Success at Auburn University is a one-weekend boot camp designed to increase your ability to read difficult college and high school texts with greater understanding—and succeed in the core courses.
At the university level, students may find that they do not remember what they read and that they have trouble using the information from assigned readings to complete papers that involve source texts, "pop" quizzes, and possibly even multiple-choice tests.
At the high school level, students may find that they take "too long" to complete assigned readings and that they have trouble remembering what they read.
Reading for Success will provide university and high school students with strategies needed to read complex texts and successfully complete assignments.
Each workshop session is offered in a "boot camp" format of 16 hours.
The program will begin on Friday afternoon, run all day Saturday, and conclude Sunday afternoon.
The Reading for Success boot camp will stress how to focus on and relate to central ideas in difficult required readings.
Upon completion of the Reading for Success at Auburn University program, students will be able to…
Each participant will receive a workbook and reference materials for use during the boot camp. This workbook will be for participants to keep and will serve as a valuable resource for future reference and review.
The Reading for Success at Auburn University has been developed by Dr. Alyson Whyte and Dr. Sara Wolf.
Dr. Whyte teaches in the College of Education in the English Education program. She has taught a variety of students in four states how to be expert readers and users of information from a variety of text-based sources including high school, college, and professional sources. She is excited to begin exploring the connection between the written word and the mental images that result from interacting with text.
Dr. Wolf teaches in the College of Education in the School Library Media Program. She is not your stereotypical librarian, though. She has taught students in three states how to access, evaluate, and use information from a variety of sources, both print and non-print. She is particularly interested in helping students use the appropriate technological tool to support their academic efforts.
Those interested in participating in the Reading for Success at Auburn University boot camp are encouraged to register early, as there will be limited seating in each session. (30 max.)
If you have questions about the program, please feel free to e-mail your questions to email@example.com (please put Reading for Success in the subject line). Your questions will be forwarded to the instructors and answered as quickly as possible.
