Critical Reading Strategies for Onscreen Texts

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Although we’ve associated reading with paper for well of two thousand years, the past twenty have changed all that: much of what we read these days appears electronically on screens. This workshop will survey means of engaging with texts in electronic formats, with tips for active reading and electronic annotation in college coursework. Please bring your laptop, tablet and/or cell phone.
