Professional Development Modules Project: Reading Comprehension
The purpose of this $245,389 grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board is to create 14 digitized instructional modules designed to provide college-level faculty with effective strategies to improve reading comprehension skills in entry-level college courses across disciplines. The modules are designed for faculty who were not trained in reading comprehension and are based on the assumption that faculty using these modules are novices in teaching reading comprehension. Of particular note to these 14 modules are 11-14: reading rhetorically, reading electronic texts, reading visuals, and judging textbooks for effective comprehension. I am working as Co-PI along with Sunay Pasole who leads the technology development team.
