Reading in the Content Area

No matter the content area, students are expected to understand the vocabulary and read directions, articles, and other information about the topic.  In particular, students in Advanced Placement courses will need to read multiple choice questions, performance tasks, and free response questions.

These videos were developed by Dr. Neil Witikko, associate professor of education at the College of St. Scholastica (CSS), who teaches a graduate education course on reading in the content area. The videos outline strategies for helping students read in computer science, especially for texts that are at a college-level.  

NOTICE: As of Spring 2023, we are aware that the following videos are currently unavailable and we are working to connect with CSS about the new links. We apologize for any inconvenience.
