Many students struggle to read at a college level. I developed three reading strategies that bolstered student engagement and intrinsic motivation. Students connected with the material in many ways and discovered that some of the best learning happens when it is in motion. Let’s FIRE UP students to read!

Students must get out of their seats; movement heightens engagement. I will use a similar method in my presentation. First, I will frontload three different reading strategies. Next, I will ask the roundtable to use the strategies to complete a variety of exercises. Once, the conference members complete the drill, we will engage in a discussion based on the activity. These procedures will emulate how I use these reading strategies in my classroom. Lastly, I will also lead a discussion about how students may use the aforementioned strategies while preparing for class on their own.
