Reading Comprehension

Improving Reading Comprehension

Reading comprehension is a challenge for many UTEP students for various reasons ranging widely. Dr Beth Brunk-Chavez, Mr. Steven Varela, Ms. Nancy Shaffer, and Ms. Terri Storey-Gore in collaboration with Academic Technologies have developed a series of online learning modules for faculty that present them with simple, yet effective strategies that can be implemented immediately in student assignments. These modules help them understand what they are reading at a deeper level, thus improving their preparation for class and improving their performance and learning. The modules are currently accessible through the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board at http://www.txprofdev.org/apps/reading/
