Katherine Perrotta

This session illustrates how to promote engagement and critical thinking about course readings with student authored reading cards. Students were assigned to write questions about assigned chapters from the course text. The presenter will describe the process in which the reading cards were assigned, and how to use the reading cards as discussion prompts, debate topics, and short-answer options for course assessments. The presenter will provide index cards and sample readings for participants to try the activity and discuss how they can adapt this activity for their own classes.
