No one would argue that in-class discussions improve when students read and think about their texts before class. But one of the most common questions that I have been asked by several faculty members is: “How do you get students to read the assigned texts before coming to class?” This is not a unique problem with AUC students, and a very similar question (“How to get students to prepare for class”), posted on a discussion list of a faculty development site on the internet, elicited a large number of responses.
