Welcome to Reading Across the Curriculum!

Current research at all levels of schooling emphasizes the importance of effective reading comprehension. Even as adults, our students need guidance with this ability. However, many of us are not familiar with strategies for helping our students become more effective readers.

The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) invites you to participate in these 14 instructional modules that provide ideas on teaching reading comprehension for college-level faculty. These modules offer insights into reading difficulties as well as effective strategies to improve reading comprehension in college courses across disciplines.

The modules are designed to work both independently or together, and each takes 45–75 minutes to complete. Each module also provides printable handouts of strategies both for faculty and for students.

The Building Reading Comprehension modules are available to all public institutions in the State of Texas.
