This session will focus on research-based principles for integrating reading strategies into all levels of a writing program. Attendees will explore effective teaching practices for designing courses, writing assignments, and related learning activities that help students strengthen critical reading skills and make a successful transition to college-level source-based writing.

The session will be organized into four sections: 1) a short introduction to research-based principles for integrating reading into writing courses, 2) an overview of an award-winning model writing program curriculum that incorporates reading instruction and writing about reading into each level of a college writing program from developmental education to sophomore writing, 3) examples of reading-based writing assignments and related learning activities at each course level in a writing program, and 4) a facilitated discussion with attendees about strategies for applying concepts from the presentation to participants’ own courses and programs.
