Reading Apprenticeship for First Year Experience

What You Learn

  • How to use Reading Apprenticeship as an instructional framework to support robust learning in first year courses and/or summer bridge programs
  • How to recognize and model for students the reading strategies you use as an expert reader of academic texts
  • How to build students’ willingness and capacity to read more, and more rigorous (college-level) texts
  • How to accelerate students’ learning and literacy, simultaneously, as they transition to college
  • How to engage students in understanding their own thinking processes—the power of metacognition

Additionally, online follow-up sessions will address:
