Don’t give up . . .Our Students Can Read!
Reading Apprenticeship (RA) helps teachers support students across the disciplines and levels to become motivated, strategic, and critical readers, thinkers, and writers, to develop positive literacy identities, and to engage with challenging academic texts.
Join other community college faculty in exploring the Reading Apprenticeship framework and related instructional routines. This event is ideal for faculty new to Reading Apprenticeship, faculty and administrators working to build an RA team at their campus, and RA online course alumni. The workshop features the following:
- Overview of the Reading Apprenticeship (RA) Framework
- Demonstration and hands-on adaptation of RA routines to your discipline.
- Spotlight presentations on how RA has been adapted by community college faculty to increase student participation, capabilities and success in their classes.
