Published in partnership with WestEd, this significantly updated second edition of the bestselling book by Ruth Schoenbach et al. contains strategies for helping students in middle school through community college gain the reading independence to master subject area textbooks and other material. Perhaps the most important aspect of the Reading Apprenticeship classroom is Metacognitive Conversation. Simply put: are your students able to make sense of what they read? This portion of chapter four includes strategies and activities for making your students’ learning visible and, above all, helping learners to understand that reading is more than deciphering letters and words on a page.
