Cleveland State University Library hosts Common Reading Experience activities
Cleveland State University kicked off the 2007 Common Reading Experience on Tuesday, October 16 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. on the Library's first floor. Dr. Bette Bonder, College of Science Dean, made a presentation titled "Understanding Autism," based on the book chosen for this year's pilot program - Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, whose main character is a mathematically-gifted autistic teenager.

Undergraduate, Special Education
Cleveland State University
A list of film screenings, which are also open to the campus community, can be found at http://www.ulib.csuohio.edu/cr/events.html
Cleveland State University first year students enrolled in Introduction to University Life will join in this common reading experience with thousands of other American college students this fall. The goal of the common reading program is to create a shared learning experience that fosters student engagement, retention, and personal development beyond the classroom.
A committee of faculty, librarians, and administrators chose The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time based on its relationship to issues and topics that cut across different disciplines (Special Education, Communication, Diversity, Psychology, Art, Mathematics, Science, Speech and Language, Social Work, etc.) as well as issues of individual and family experiences. Participation in this common reading experience is not limited to just the Introduction to University Life students. All members of the University community are encouraged to read the book and participate in activities including film screenings, brown bag faculty speakers series, and more. Also, visit the Common Reading Experience display on the Library's first floor, through October.
For more information, visit the Common Learning Experience website at http://www.ulib.csuohio.edu/cr/index.html or contact Dr. Elizabeth A. Lehfeldt, Interim Director of General Education and Associate Professor of History at 687-3935.
