Subject: learning to read
I'm looking for universities or colleges that are doing anything
interesting with teaching students to read. I don't mean in the first
instance normal "remedial" reading, but rather organized work --
inside traditional courses or outside -- that focuses on the habits,
techniques, and predilections of what I might call the serious reader.
Acquiring the skills that let you read Spenser or George Eliot or Max
Weber, and in the process helping students *feel* that such activity
is normal and desirable and comfortable.
