Academic Reading Circles – our latest title out now!
Academic Reading Circles (ARC) is an intensive reading approach whose components work on the basis that language learners develop deep textual comprehension better through initial collaboration than if tackled alone. The purpose of ARC is to improve learner engagement with and understanding of concepts in non-fiction texts, like those encountered in higher education courses. Learners engage with a text through different lenses that draw attention to specific types of information, and they co-construct knowledge discovered from these lenses for a clearer overall picture of the meaning and significance of the text.
This book provides teachers with the roles, the procedure, and the sample activities to improve learner use of course texts.
