For diverse secondary students to become increasingly independent, capable, and critical in their thinking, reading, writing, and speaking in varied disciplinary domains and in the complex literacy tasks of daily life, they need learning opportunities that help them develop dispositions, text-based problem-solving capacities, discipline-based literacy practices, and resilient learner identities. In this presentation, Dr. Greenleaf shared the Reading Apprenticeship instructional framework and its research base, focusing on case studies of subject-area classrooms and individual student literacy performances to demonstrate the framework and its impact on students’ growth toward engaged academic literacy.
