Title of Session
Helping Students Succeed:  A Look at Disciplinary Literacy.



Description
This presentation will focus on the purposes that college reading classes should pay more attention to the differences in the various disciplines that students will study in college, such as History, Literature, Mathematics, and Science.  If students understand the purposes and practices of these disciplines they will be more likely to employ effective strategies for reading and writing as they move through their regular college coursework
