This course is designed to support students in developing strategies for reading theoretical, dense, or otherwise difficult texts. Students will practice several reading techniques, including note-taking and underlining, reading with and against the grain of a text, skim-reading, "chunking," close-reading, textual and rhetorical analysis, background research, exploring multiple possible interpretations, summary, paraphrase, and synthesizing information from multiple sources. They will apply these strategies to studying works of literary and cultural criticism, post-structuralist theory, fiction, and creative non-fiction.
