Chapter 2- Reading with the disciplines

The book states that reading within a discipline doesn't mean just unlocking the text or answering the questions related to comprehension. It means students can understand how purpose and context inform their reading and that the act of reading can differ depending upon the text (pg.14). Having students read is hard because most students read textbooks and teachers have to look for engaging articles, scholarly articles, magazines, etc. for students to read within the disciplines. This chapter has proved that reading should be engaging for students to continue reading. As a future educator, I want to help my students find reading fun by helping them explore different books, articles, etc to learn new things, interests, and relevance.
