Discussion on "Everything is an Argument"


Reading Strategies These are techniques to foster a better understanding for reading.

  • Teach critical reading overtly: "When you read this, think about XXX." Give a purpose to reading.
  • Questioning: prompts, quizzes, etc.
  • Modeling: Reading aloud in class. Talk about how you're reading. What are you thinking? "think aloud protocol"
  • Intensive Strategies: Reading guides built of statements, not questions.
a. Level 1: Reading the lines (main ideas) - true/false, factual information, w/page reference
b. Level 2: Read between the lines (inference) - This is valid or not. Provide evidence to support.
c. Level 3: Read beyond the lines. Students make connections to readings, course content or lived experience. Students must provide evidence to support.
  • Discourse Synthesis

Locate and apply Intensive Strategy to a quote:

  • Introduce topic or idea. Each person has their own distinct interpretation and perspective.
  • Utilize quote
  • Explain quote with connection, example, or experience
