Rethinking Preparation for Content Area Teaching

The Reading Apprenticeship Approach

Arguing that teacher education programs need to foster a broader understanding of adolescent literacy, especially if teachers are to help their students read in discipline-specific ways, the authors show how Reading Apprenticeship can strengthen content-based instruction, how elements of the model can be embedded in teacher preparation curricula, and what types of course activities enable new teachers to understand and practice this approach.


“The book is thick with resources, strategies, and reflective practices, and I look forward to using it as a resource for my own teacher education and professional development practices.”
—Elizabeth Birr Moje, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor Educational Studies, University of Michigan
