Academic reading is often the neglected counterpart to academic writing within higher education. This paper introduces a resource presented at ‘Becoming Well Read 2021’, which was designed to support students with academic reading. Using a fairy tale as an example text, students respond to structured discussion questions that are then applied to the academic context. This paper concludes with reflections on how the resource could be adapted for future use in order to support students to actively engage with academic materials.
