This project pairs LL ED 005 College Reading (which I am teaching) with a content course, BiSc 003 Environmental Science, taught by Dr. Jorge Santiago-Blay. In LL ED 005, students acquire reading and learning skills that they apply to the content of the BiSc course. In addition to reading skills, students are also working through a series of reflections geared towards helping them become stronger lifelong learners, using the Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory (ELLI).
Below is a concept map of the course design. The blog posts that follow are in reverse order, summarizing the activities and discoveries during the course. Analysis of the data is on-going.
