Reading Apprenticeship Introduction Online


“Most online learning is independent and isolated. We’ve structured all our online learning to be collaborative in nature.”

—Heather Howlett, WestEd (Lead Course Designer & Instructor)

Introductory Reading Apprenticeship Course

This course is designed to provide an introduction to the Reading Apprenticeship framework, focusing on building student motivation and collaboration while working with content area texts. You will also learn new ways to help students develop reading stamina through extensive reading and gain new formative assessment tools which will sharpen your responsive teaching skills. Activities include professional reading, viewing classroom video, posting to online discussions, and more.

What You Learn

  • How to accelerate students’ subject area learning and literacy, simultaneously
  • How to foster learning dispositions of persistence, problem solving, and collaboration
  • How to help students “make their thinking visible”
  • How to step away from “delivering” content and move students toward independence
  • How to identify and leverage your own expertise reading the texts of your discipline
