Teaching Reading -- Overview

Composing Inquiry includes readings that can be used to model how researchers pose questions, investigate issues and present their findings in written form. 

This section provides resources for three different kinds of reading instruction. Though we use specific readings as examples, these strategies and activities can be adapted to any of the readings or assignments.

Reading to Comprehend:  helping students read more purposefully and develop strategies for reading difficult material more confidently

Reading as a Researcher: using the readings to teach and re-enforce the methods of research

Reading as a Writer: understanding how writers present their work on the page
