Academic Resource Centers are a network of professionals from 13 offices or departments with expertise in teaching a variety of academic skills. Our purpose is to support faculty and student success in teaching and learning.
The primary goal of the Reading Laboratory is to support your academic success at Grinnell. You will work both individually and in small discussion groups to improve your reading comprehension and rate, build your vocabulary, and develop more effective study strategies. International students may also choose to work on their English language proficiency.
Director Joan Mohan provides individual and small-group instruction to help students: strengthen verbal skills, emphasizing critical comprehension and vocabulary; improve reading efficiency; acquire more effective study strategies (such as managing time, concentrating, remembering, test-taking); improve ESL (English as a Second Language) proficiency and pronunciation. The Reading Lab is located at 1321 Park Street, across from Younker Hall.
