Cognitive Development of the Adult Reader: Theory and Practice
The act of reading is a complex cognitive and neurological task. As a species, we’ve only been doing it regularly for a few hundred years, yet it is a primary source of acquiring knowledge. Over the next several months, SAGE Reading faculty are offering a 4-course series designed to penetrate the extensive theory and bests practices for teaching adults to become successful readers of a wide range of texts. Although the courses have been developed primarily for SAGE Reading and English faculty who will be teaching the new SAGE Integrated Reading and Writing courses, any instructor who requires students to read texts, articles, or essays can benefit from the courses. Each course will involve some pre-reading, a 4-hour workshop, and the opportunity for online follow-up discussions. For brief description of all 4 courses with registration links, go here.
