Close the Achievement Gap in Middle and High School with Reading Apprenticeship

More than ever, middle and high school students are required to understand a variety of text formats, think critically about what they read, and construct text-based arguments. Reading Apprenticeship is an evidence-based approach to classroom instruction and professional learning proven to help close the achievement gap in ELA, science, and social studies.

Using the Reading Apprenticeship approach, you can help middle and high school students throughout Florida progress toward grade-level targets. For students already at grade level, Reading Apprenticeship promotes deeper learning and enhances critical thinking.

Reading Apprenticeship professional learning enables you to give students the tools and skills they need to become persistent, resilient readers, writers, and learners — in any subject.
