Our approach: why it works
Educators of every subject area face the challenge of supporting students to meet rigorous standards. Increasingly, students must be prepared with high-level literacy skills, including the ability to think critically, synthesize information, and construct arguments.
Reading Apprenticeship is a professional learning model that meets these challenges. Our approach is proven to develop student academic identity, engagement, subject-area knowledge, and disciplinary literacy.
Reading Apprenticeship engages students through four interacting dimensions of learning. These dimensions are developed through Metacognitive Conversation that explores students’ thinking processes.
Credible data. Proven results.
Over 25 years of research, including multiple randomized controlled studies, demonstrate that Reading Apprenticeship yields marked positive outcomes for students in literacy, content area learning, and academic success. These studies consistently show students in Reading Apprenticeship classrooms out-perform peers in ‘business as usual’ classrooms.
