Course Overview

This course is designed to support faculty and other stakeholders (department chairs, deans, tutoring coordinators, etc.) who are redesigning and/or teaching college writing courses and want to deepen their understanding and use of the Reading Apprenticeship framework, particularly the role that metacognitive conversations can play in integrated reading and writing courses.

In the course, we will use the Reading Apprenticeship framework and routines to consider threshold concepts in the field of writing studies while historicizing the field to understand our place in a larger, well researched and resourced context. We will also explore high impact models from various contexts, and begin to form a supportive “improvement community” to better be able to serve our shared students.
