9780134396125: Strategic Reader -- Standalone Access Card

Help your students build the reading strategies they need to succeed. Based on a proven short course taught at Harvard University’s Bureau of Study Counsel, Strategic Reader prepares students for the volume and rigor of college reading assignments.


In Strategic Reader, students expand their repertoire of reading strategies, develop the metacognitive capacities essential to advanced reading and learning, and practice flexibility and judgment in adapting their reading approaches to different materials and purposes.


Any college-ready reader, from college freshman to graduate student, will benefit from Strategic Reader.  It is well suited for use in study skills or gateway courses across the disciplines to increase student persistence and promote college success.


In our pilot, 73% of students reported that they were more aware of their reading strategies. Over 72% said that they would apply the reading approaches learned from Strategic Reader to their other coursework.

About the Author:

Abigail Lipson, Ph.D. is the Director of the Bureau of Study Counsel at Harvard University.  Her interests include the practical, experiential, and neurocognitive aspects of the learning process; the development of learning skills like reading, writing, quantitative reasoning, and critical thinking; the relationships between motivation, achievement, and creativity; and resilience under conditions of success and failure.  She is a licensed psychologist and has published widely on topics related to college student development.  Lipson and Reindl have collaborated on many projects, including The Language of Life and Learning, a deck of 700 word and image cards that promote reflection and connection. 


Sheila M. Reindl, Ed.D. is the Associate Director of the Bureau of Study Counsel at Harvard University.  Her interests include the development of voice and authority in writing and in life generally and the role of curiosity, playfulness, humility, and listening to the emergent in our relationships with self, others, and our creative endeavors.  She is a licensed psychologist and the author of Sensing the Self: Women’s Recovery from Bulimia.  She has also produced many materials on the writing process, including “ A Procrastinator’s Guide to Writing ” and “Writing Things Down Before Writing Things Up.”


Strategic Reader is based on a live mini-course, the Harvard Course in Reading and Study Strategies, offered by the Bureau of Study Counsel  (BSC) at Harvard University.  The course was created by William G. Perry, Jr., the founding director of the BSC, and has continuously evolved to reflect advances in the field of reading cognition and changes in reading demands and media.  Having taken the course, taught it many times, designed and directed its major revisions and renovations, and now translated it into an online format, the authors are committed to integrating the core, durable wisdom of the original course with contemporary research and technology.  As the current directors of the BSC and stewards of the course, Lipson and Reindl believe that Strategic Reader can introduce students everywhere to the powerful, creative, and transformative possibilities of reading with an inquiring mind.
