Journal Article: Using paper scrolls to teach reading and writing in higher education classrooms

I would like to share with you a case study, just published, in which graduate students at London Metropolitan University were introduced to the idea of using paper scrolls to address the academic reading needs of non-traditional, international, and learning disabled students. They found this simple, ancient book format to be more welcoming, accessible, and collaborative than the codex (bound book); they found that it provides for a better dialogic encounter with reading.

Are scrolls better than books for teaching students how to survey a textbook chapter?  It’s a strange, unconventional, out-of-the-box question.  But the idea has a strong theoretical foundation, and it is backed by 25 years of practical experience in college classrooms.
