Our aim for this session is facilitate a conversation in which we unpack some of the challenges associated with teaching with and learning from texts across the disciplines, and further, to exchange curricular, instructional, and assessment practices which promote effective analytical and critical reading, in particular. Initial discussion questions include: (1) How do college teaching with text practices differ from those of K-12 instructors? (2) How and why do reading demands vary across disciplines? and, (3) How does a specific course context (e.g. goals, lecture material, other assigned texts, assignments) influence the reading demands encountered by students?
