Helping students develop critical reading skills: Opinion

Chronicle of Higher Ed Senior Writer Beth McMurtrie has penned an article discussing some of the ways that professors are helping students develop their critical reading skills and overcome deficiencies in their reading and writing. Some instructors have changed the amount or type of reading assignments they give their students and are spending more time helping students build their reading skills, vocabulary, and knowledge organization habits. McMurtrie also outlines how Julie Fromer (Ithaca College) avoids some of the issues with AI-generated writing on discussion boards by using an app that enables students to annotate texts and engage with each other.
