Both teachers and students learn best when they are given many opportunities to read, write, collaborate, and solve tough problems using multiple texts. A WestEd project aims to help teachers and students do just that.

Reading Apprenticeship Across the Disciplines (RAAD) is a three-year WestEd project designed to improve teacher effectiveness and student learning at the secondary level by providing literacy-focused, research-based professional learning experiences to 2,000 teachers. RAAD is funded by a Supporting Effective Educator Development grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

WestEd’s Reading Apprenticeship is partnering with education leaders and schools in California, Chicago, Michigan, New York City, Texas, and Wisconsin to implement RAAD while at the same time increasing local capacity to sustain this work.
