Reading across the Disciplines

Reading Across the Disciplines offers a collection of twelve essays detailing a range of approaches to dealing with students' reading needs at the college level. Transforming reading in higher education requires more than individual faculty members working on SoTL projects in their particular fields. Teachers need to consider reading across the disciplines.

In this collection, authors from Australia and North America, teaching in a variety of disciplines, explore reading in undergraduate courses, doctoral seminars, and faculty development activities. By paying attention to the particular classroom and placing those observations in conversation with scholarly literature, they create new knowledge about reading in higher education from disciplinary and cross-disciplinary perspectives.

Reading Across the Disciplines demonstrates how existing research about reading can be applied to specific classroom contexts, offering models for faculty members whose own research interests may lie elsewhere but who believe in the importance of reading.

About the Authors

Karen Manarin is Professor of English and Board of Governors Chair in Advanced Literacy at Mount Royal University. Lead author (with Miriam Carey, Melanie Rathburn, and Glen Ryland) of Critical Reading in Higher Education: Academic Goals and Social Engagement, she has also published in a number of teaching and learning journals.

Reviews

"Reading across the Disciplines truly cuts across disciplines and approaches and shows explicitly why teaching reading should be an integral part of every course. Its exploration of the intersection of reading instruction (and its importance) and SoTL makes this a wonderful book for a general and transdisciplinary audience."—Nicole Simmons, Brock University

"Reading across the Disciplines offers a useful set of chapters detailing a range of approaches to dealing with students' reading needs at the college level. As the Introduction points out, there is a real need for instructors across the curriculum to work on reading in every course along with a great deal of resistance to doing so. The more faculty members in all disciplines see a variety of ways to help students with reading, the more likely they are to begin to adopt some of these approaches in their classrooms regardless of their subject areas, a development urgently needed everywhere."—Alice S. Horning, Oakland University
