Hone your reading strategies to help you anticipate and answer questions in class.

 

Does the idea of being cold called in class fill you with dread? Do you do the readings but still feel caught off guard when asked a question? Numerous graduate programs use a method of oral interrogation in the classroom or on exams to stimulate critical thinking, but the process can be intimidating. This Grad Studio will help you organize your reading habits to prepare for class discussions and cold calls.

 

We will discuss:

  • Active reading methods
  • Types of common questions and how to prepare for them
  • Tips for answering unfamiliar questions

Bring any of your assigned readings and put these strategies into practice before your next class!
