Reading in the Disciplines

The Challenges of Adolescent Literacy

In making recommendations for improving policy and practice in the area of disciplinary literacy, the authors describe the Reading Apprenticeship approach as one of three approaches that offer powerful ways to help high school students learn to read with understanding within and across academic disciplines.

This report defines and illustrates what is involved in comprehending texts within and across academic disciplines; summarizes the research base on reading comprehension generally and in the disciplines specifically, and briefly discusses implications for teaching and assessments.
