According to the US Dept. of Education, over 50% of adults read below a sixth-grade reading level. This is a serious equity (and economic!) issue – and college instructors are in a position to help. In this session, we’ll explore the data and learn strategies for supporting college-level reading in our courses through easy-to-implement tools like Immersive Reader. We’ll also cover strategies for teaching and assessing students in dynamic modalities that push beyond the text.
