Increasing Student Achievement Schoolwide Through Reading Apprenticeship

Carnegie Corporation of New York and Walter S. Johnson Foundation • 2001–2004

This case study reports on Reading Apprenticeship professional development work in two Bay Area schools that implemented Reading Apprenticeship schoolwide. These schools, identified by the California Department of Education as academically underperforming schools, documented rising Academic Performance Indices (API) that they attribute to Reading Apprenticeship. Both of these school-level cases offer powerful models of schoolwide, systemic change that involves both teachers and administrators working together.
