Reading Efficiently and Effectively
February 18, 2020 @ 10:00 am – 11:40 am EST
Workshop taught by Dr. Sara Osenton
All graduate students have the challenge of dealing with large volumes of reading material. In this workshop for multilingual graduate students, we will examine strategies for identifying your research and reading goals to help you effectively and efficiently make the most of your readings. We will discuss how to scan and skim text and where to focus your time. Special attention will be paid to developing strategies for dealing with unfamiliar vocabulary items, for identifying an author’s strength of claim, and for prioritizing your reading when time is short.
