  • Pat Conaway

    Pat Conaway has recently started working in a new position where he teaches students in the intensive English track as well as some general education classes. The university does not have an extensive reading program, but he tries to incorporate it into all of his classes. Rather than have reading stand alone separately, reading is used to support in-class activities and group projects with the aim of increasing students' engagement with their books.
