We've been highlighting the fine work by Professor Ruth Ann McKinney who writes about how to teach law students to improve their reading skills. The attention is well deserved. She has, after all, written the book.
Her recent publication, Reading Like a Lawyer, is accompanied by a teacher's manual with suggestions and powerpoint presentations on how to incorporate the strategies to improve reading into orientation programs.
Excerpts are available on the web.
Teachers may obtain a complimentary copy by visiting the Carolina Academic Press online. (els).
