PLC: The Read/Write Connection
Have you ever thought to yourself, “I assign this great reading, but when I ask the students to write about how they would apply the ideas, they seem confused?" This Quality Enhancement Plan-sponsored professional learning community (PLC) will provide tools to discuss academic purposes for including assignments that bring together reading and writing and will stress practical approaches for teaching students to read like writers. The Read/Write Connection PLC will ask whether our traditional writing assignments lead to a shallow understanding of disciplinary reading and whether emphasizing the intellectual processes of reading, including the role genre plays in understanding, can better meet the learning goals we have for our students and their needs for success in their academic programs and careers.
