What is Reading In the Disciplines?

Post-Secondary Learning (PSL) 109: Reading In the Disciplines is a one-credit, pass/fail discussion course attached to a parent-course, designed specifically to help you develop your abilities to deal successfully with the readings and lecture material in that parent-course.

How does Reading In the Disciplines work?

Collaboration is the key to successful Reading In the Disciplines group work. You meet once a week with a small group of fellow students and a trained Reading In the Disciplines undergraduate peer facilitator to go over class readings and lecture material.

What can Reading In the Disciplines offer you?

Reading In the Disciplines will take you deeper into your understanding of the parent-course. Here's how:

  • You will improve your understanding of the course material. You will get the opportunity to discuss the readings in depth under the guidance of a trained undergraduate peer facilitator.
  • You will explore your responses and reactions to course material. You will be meeting with the same students each week, allowing you to get to know others in your group and to ask questions in a safe and exploratory environment.
  • You will develop confidence in explaining and presenting your ideas in front of your peers and in classroom discussion. As the semester progresses you will have many opportunities to formulate responses and arguments within the discussion group which will make you a more confident participant in class discussion.
