    Panel members will discuss their experiences in college lead by a short presentation by Dr. Holschuh.

    Undergraduate students often find that the tasks they are asked to do in college are quite different than those they experienced in high school courses. Though the assignments may initially appear similar—writing papers, reading textbooks, discussing ideas with peers, students and researchers have noted that these tasks can feel tricky, varied, and complex. A portion of the panel discussion will discuss Dr. Holschuh's experiences taking a semester’s worth of undergraduate courses in order to determine the literacy task demands placed on today’s students. We will also discuss ways to be savvy about both professor expectations and sophisticated literacy strategies.
