A message from Stacey Johnson, President, East & Winter Park Campuses
The Academic Success Center on East campus is excited to announce new student services piloted this semester in the Communications Center.
During the fall 2015 semester, a team of Communications Center consultants designed a reading tutoring program that meets the growing needs of a diverse student population enrolled in a variety of disciplines.
Using Bloom’s Taxonomy as a design principle, this service helps students understand the process and flow of reading, while strengthening their comprehension skills. Consultants will model reading skills and work through chunks of text with students to achieve greater success on tasks and assignments associated with reading. In addition, students can also find books and worksheets designed to build comprehension skills and can use these reading resources to aid in navigating complicated course texts and research articles.
