Schools around the nation must respond to the changing needs of 21st century students preparing to enter the workforce. Recent research has shown many colleges and employers have been disappointed in their newest employees' or students' skills needed to fully comprehend informational text, such as technical manuals or scholarly journals. In response, schools are putting forth a nationwide effort to explicitly instruct students on reading nonliterary material. A wide variety of strategies have been published, but individual teachers will need to experiment to see what works best with their specific body of students and content area. The purpose of this project is to study the impact of a reading comprehension strategy called the "Three-Minute Pause" in a secondary visual arts classroom, using expository material on photography as social activism. The outcomes will inform my own teaching practices and curriculum.
