Does Reading Matter? | Faculty Interest Group at Kingsborough
Are you seeking new strategies for cultivating or supporting deep reading in your students?
Organized by the Faculty Initiative on Teaching Reading (FITR) and facilitated by Gregory Bruno (English), the “Does Reading Matter?” FIG will explore the role and application of Dialogic Practice—an approach aimed at navigating the complexities of student identity, teaching, and learning—in cultivating deep reading practices across our college curricula. This semester, readings and discussion will center on transactional reading theory, reading and student identity, and strategizing pedagogical approaches to supporting deep reading both online and in-person.
