Over a five-year period, more than 1,900┬áteachers and 600,000 students in five states participated in Reading Apprenticeship, WestEd’s signature approach to improving secondary school literacy.

Among key elements of the scale-up were teacher leaders supporting Reading Apprenticeship from within schools; well-structured, multifaceted professional learning spread through the year; and integrated support at national, state, and local levels.
