Reading Apprenticeship at WestEd: Downloadable Resources

Reading Apprenticeship is a method of teaching literacy that centers on supporting student metacognition - or the ability to strategically think and reflect on their own learning. Developed over the course of three decades by a team of educators at the educational nonprofit WestEd, Reading Apprenticeship centers on a series of practices and strategies that can be used to support literacy development in the K-12, higher education, and adult education contexts. On this page, instructors can download a number of free resources related to this method, including an extensive overview of the philosophy and practices behind the approach and a number of graphic organizers to use in the classroom. The graphic organizers are designed to help students reflect on their own reading (e.g. to make predictions, identify areas of confusion, and name appropriate strategies, etc.) and can be easily incorporated into any English or literacy classroom. The resources available here, free of charge, come from the 2012 book Reading for Understanding by Ruth Schoenbach, Cynthia Greenleaf, and Lynn Murphey.
