Engaged Academic Literacy for All with Reading Apprenticeship: The Reading Apprenticeship instructional framework helps educators learn how to build on students’ underestimated strengths as readers and problem solvers and create instructional opportunities for “apprenticing” students into discipline-specific academic literacies. The workshop will engage participants in the key routines by which they could bring metacognitive conversation into their classrooms.

Mindfulness & Metacognition – 5th Annual Reading Apprenticeship Conference

Renton Technical College’s Mindfulness & Metacognition conference brings together the leadership from the Reading Apprenticeship Leadership Community of Practice to learn how community college faculty and staff are using Reading Apprenticeship across their campuses.

Literacy at the Heart of Institutional Change – 4th Annual Reading Apprenticeship Conference
Hosted by 3CSN’s Reading Apprenticeship Project

Registration for this exciting event is open until the day before, May 2! Hear what the conference conveners have to say about the theme of this year’s event: “With the Reading Apprenticeship framework, we aim to create coherent communities of practice for educators and students, reaching across traditional silos that disrupt meaningful collaboration, such as student and academic affairs, full-time faculty, contingent faculty, staff, and managers… This year’s Reading Apprenticeship conference title is Literacy at the Heart of Institutional Change. This theme and title helps us name the fullness of apprenticeship and the complex disciplinary knowledge and skills we’re apprenticing students into… It’s time to make transparent how literacy is the engine for ongoing learning and personal, professional, and institutional transformation. It’s time for the Reading Apprenticeship conference to more transparently focus on reading and writing across the curriculum and literacy that is at the heart of institutional change.”
