Hi Emily,

Is your request time sensitive?

I use technique called Textbook Mapping. (I developed the technique, so don't be concerned if you are not familiar with it.) It is highly effective. I think you will find it very useful.

I just wrapped up a four week study in which I introduced the technique to the study participants. They absolutely loved the technique and have experienced increases in their qualitative learning outcomes (which we measured) that produced significant quantitative jumps on their tests and quizzes (which have been confirmed by their respective professors).

The sessions were video recorded. I plan on condensing them and making them available via the listserve soemetime next week.

Also, I may have an opportunity to present the technique at NCLA and/or the CRLA conference, if my proposals are accepted.

Thanks and stay tuned...

What kinds of assistance do you offer for helping students improve reading comprehension? We already have workshops in place on note-taking and college-level reading strategies.

Thank you!
