Reading Practices

Chabot English faculty believe students who improve their reading tend to improve their writing and vice-versa.  Reading should be integrated with writing, speaking and listening at all levels of our English courses.

An active reading style is critical to improving reading comprehension and more effective in helping students grasp ideas and meaning than "word by word reading." We must actively lead students in the classroom to critically read assigned texts.  Teaching reading includes guiding students in understanding what they are reading, how they should read it, and the author's purpose.
