How often have you heard an instructor say, "How did these students not learn to read in previous classes?!" Application of skills from one course to another, especially another discipline, can be very difficult. Contextualization provides students the opportunity to implement reading skills in relevant, meaningful projects and/or activities that can be applied to subsequent coursework in other disciplines and in students' personal lives. This webinar will provide some ideas for contextualized project/problem-based learning that provides students the chance to make decisions about what they read, how to approach reading a variety of text for a variety of purposes, and how to apply new knowledge to real world problems.
Presenter: Mary Zimmerer, Reading Faculty; Chair, Composition, Creative Writing, and Literature Division; Chandler-Gilbert Community College
