“Much of the most important learning that we have achieved in life -whether it is baking pies, fishing for walleyes, or throwing a pot on the wheel -has been in the role of apprentice to a master craftsman, an expert, an accomplished veteran. We learned by witnessing the expert engaged in an activity, and as we collaborated and received feedback on our performance, we gradually moved from novice status to independence.” Doug Buehl
Teachers incoporating a Reading Apprenticeship methodology exemplifyÂ a partnership of expertise between the teacher and students,Â drawing on what they know and do as skilled discipline-based readersÂ and on adolescentsâ€™ unique and often underestimated strengths in a community of learning.
4-Day Reading Apprenticeship Trainings are offered through BLaST for teams of content area teachers.
