An Authentically Simulated Approach to Disciplinary Literacy Instruction in a Study Strategies Course
Armstrong, Sonya L.; Reynolds, Rita
NADE Digest, v5 n2 p1-9 Spr 2011
This manuscript describes a first-year college study strategies course designed to introduce students to literacy practices typical in academic settings. Given constraints imposed by institutional requirements on students' schedules during their first year, an authentic course pairing with a content area course is rarely possible; therefore, the study strategies course described in this manuscript is intended as a possible alternative by providing authentically simulated instruction in three disciplines (biology, psychology, and history).
