    Academic Reading Circles: An Innovative Approach for the Learners' Autonomy Enhancement Workshop

    Academic Reading Circles: An Innovative Approach for the Learners' Autonomy Enhancement Workshop

    Date : 2018-11-27

    The purpose of this workshop was to familiarize the faculty members of both the English Department and the General Foundation Program (GFP) with the most recent approach to teaching academic reading skill, called Academic Reading Circle (ARC), an initiative of Tyson Seburn at the University of Toronto, Canada. The presenter started by talking about the significance of reading as a fundamental skill that encompasses all other skills and created a discussion on different techniques of its teaching. Afterwards, he touched upon the gap between traditional vis a vis modern philosophy of teaching English whereby teaching has shifted from spoon-feeding to more of a collaborative, communitive, and community-based phenomenon. In the light of ARC, learners have to be involved in an interactive task of the reconstruction of knowledge thought five different roles that are given to them by the teachers: leader, contextualizer, visualizer, highlighter, and connector. Each student is supposed to perform their role under the supervision of the class teacher to fulfill the task of reading comprehension collaboratively. The presentation ended with a discussion on the implementability of this approach in the context of Mazoon College in terms of its adaptability and challenges that teachers may encounter.
