Teaching: Getting Students to Do the Reading

You’ve prepared a great lesson plan, but students aren’t talking when you ask engaging questions. You realize it’s because they haven’t read or processed the material you asked them to prepare. How can you salvage your lesson plan for the day? How can you prevent this situation from happening in the first place? This workshop will explore some reasons why students don’t read, and what you can do in response.

This workshop is part of the Evidence-Based Teaching Strategies series for GW instructors seeking strategies to increase student engagement and communicate with learners in new ways. Workshops in this series are sponsored by the Instructional Core. The Instructional Core provides comprehensive, integrated solutions for instructors in search of teaching solutions. If you need feedback on assignment or syllabus design, advice on teaching methods, or ideas for new activities, consider booking a consultation with the Instructional Core.

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. GW has an institutional commitment to ensuring that all of our programs and events are accessible for all individuals. If you require any accommodations to participate in this event, please contact libraryevents@gwu.edu at least 72 business hours (3 business days) prior to the event.
