Reading Apprenticeship’s professional learning services for middle school and high school teachers and administrators are equity-driven and proven to increase disciplinary literacy and content knowledge for students at all levels across a range of diverse educational settings nationwide. The Reading Apprenticeship instructional approach is based on four interacting dimensions of learning—social, personal, cognitive and knowledge-building. These dimensions are developed through metacognitive conversation that explores students’ thinking processes and creates the learner disposition students require for academic success.
Participants will learn to:
- Recognize and model for students their own expert subject area reading strategies
- Engage students in understanding their own thinking processes—metacognition
- Integrate and accelerate students’ subject-area learning and literacy
- Foster learning dispositions of persistence, stamina, problem solving, and collaboration
- Incorporate all dimensions of the Reading Apprenticeship framework into class lessons and routines
- Step away from “delivering content” and move students towards independence
- Support the successful ongoing implementation of Reading Apprenticeship at your site
Who should attend:
- Middle school and high school instructors of all subject areas
- Administrators who will be supporting teachers’ implementation of Reading Apprenticeship

Federal funding: The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) recognizes four levels of evidence. The top three levels require findings of a statistically significant effect on improving student outcomes or other relevant outcomes. Based on the law’s definition, Reading Apprenticeship qualifies as a “strong” evidenced-based professional development model that states, districts and schools can utilize to advance their specific adolescent literacy initiatives. To support these efforts, state and local leaders can look to braid federal funding streams such as Title I, Title II-Part A and B, and Title III.
