"As elegantly practical as it is theoretically elegant. It is a guided tour, as one examines the tools of expert teachers as they engage students in a journey that is aptly dubbed Reading Apprenticeship?learning how to become a savvy, strategic reader under the tutelage of thoughtful, caring, and demanding teachers.? P. David Pearson, University of California, Berkeley, and founding editor of the Handbook of Reading Research. Reading for Understanding is a monumental achievement. It was a monumental achievement when it came out as a first edition in 1999, bringing years of rigorous reading research together in a framework for teaching that made sense in actual secondary school classrooms. Now, just thirteen years later, Schoenbach and Greenleaf have several randomized clinical trials and multiple on-going studies at their fingertips to demonstrate the effects of this approach for developing the reading and thinking of young people in our nation?s middle and high school classrooms, as well as in community college classrooms. Their careful work on developing disciplinary literacy among all students represents a passion for and commitment to supporting students?and their teachers?in reading for understanding, which translates to reading for enjoyment, self-awareness, learning, and for purposeful and informed action in our society. ?Elizabeth Moje, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor and Associate Dean for Research, School of Education, University of Michigan Reading Apprenticeship has proven to be an inspiration to Renton Technical College faculty and students alike. They have learned together to view themselves as readers in transformative ways, as they embrace powerful techniques to increase reading comprehension. The ideas and strategies in Reading for Understanding anchor this new and broad-based energy around reading and an enthusiasm among our faculty to model effective reading strategies for our students. ?Steve Hanson, President, Renton Technical College, Renton, Washington Reading for Understanding has the finest blend I have seen of research, strategies, and classroom vignettes to deepen teacher learning and help them connect the dots between theory and practice. ?Curtis Refior, Content Area Literacy Coach, Fowlerville Community Schools, Fowlerville, Michigan A teacher-tested, research-based resource for dramatically improving reading skills Published in partnership with WestEd, this significantly updated second edition of the bestselling book contains strategies for helping students in middle school through community college gain the reading independence to master subject area textbooks and other material. Based on the Reading Apprenticeship program, which three rigorous "gold standard" research studies have shown to be effective in raising students' reading achievement Presents a clear framework for improving the reading and subject area learning of all students, including English learners, students with special needs, as well as those in honors and AP courses Provides concrete tools for classroom use and examples from a range of classrooms Presents a clear how-to for teachers implementing the subject area literacies of the Common Core Standards Reading for Understanding proves it's never too late for teachers and students to work together to boost literacy, engagement, and achievement.

Clear, on-the-ground guidance for Reading Apprenticeship implementation Leading for Literacy provides tools and real-life examples to expand the benefits of a literacy approach that sparks students' engaged reading and thinking across disciplines, from middle school through community college. A companion to the landmark Reading for Understanding, this book guides teachers, leaders, and administrators through the nuts, bolts, benefits, and stumbling blocks of creating Reading Apprenticeship communities that extend a culture of literacy beyond individual classrooms. This book explains how to generate authentic buy-in from teachers and administrators, use the Reading Apprenticeship Framework to turn reform overload into reform coherence, and create literacy teams, professional learning communities, and Reading Apprenticeship communities of practice that sustain an institutional focus on a student-centered, strengths-based culture of literacy. Key insights from Reading Apprenticeship practitioners across the country address how to get started, build momentum, assess progress, and build partnerships and networks across schools, districts, campuses, and regions. Persistently low levels of adolescent literacy continue to short-change students, contribute to discredited high school diplomas, and cause millions of students to drop out of high school and community college. Forty percent or more of community college students require remedial reading courses as college freshman. The researchers at WestEd's Strategic Literacy Initiative developed the Reading Apprenticeship Framework to provide educators with a proven path to improving literacy for all students, and this book provides clear guidance on bringing the framework to life. How to integrate Reading Apprenticeship with existing reform efforts How to use formative assessment to promote teacher and student growth How to coach and empower teachers How to cultivate literacy leadership How to provide long-term support for a strong content-literacy program Nationwide classroom testing has shown Reading Apprenticeship to promote not only literacy and content knowledge, but also motivation and positive academic identity—leading to better student outcomes that reach beyond the classroom walls. Leading for Literacy lays out compelling ways to spread the benefits of Reading Apprenticeship, with practical guidance and real-world insight.

It can serve as an excellent resource for any content area teacher, grades 6--12, looking for classroom-based ideas to motivate adolescents in becoming more active, engaged and strategic readers. "Whenever we read books about teaching, we ask ourselves, 'But what does that look like in the classroom?' Building Academic Literacy: Lessons from Reading Apprenticeship Classrooms answers the question of what 'Academic Literacy' is, why it matters, and how teachers can develop these key intellectual habits in their students. This book, and its companion anthology, provide me the guidance and resources that I need." -Jim Burke, author, The Reader's Handbook and The English Teacher's Companion "Following close upon the heels of the widely acclaimed book Reading for Understanding, this new two-volume companion set, Building Academic Literacy: An Anthology for Reading Apprenticeship and Building Academic Literacy: Lessons from Reading Apprenticeship Classrooms, is certain to propel Academic Literacy as a course of study into increasingly more middle and high school classrooms." -Donna Alvermann, professor of education, University of Georgia and past president, International Reading Association

This book presents an evidence-based framework for understanding the literacy needs of adolescents. The premise is that educators and other critical stakeholders need to understand evidence-based principles in order to develop effective curriculum to meet the needs of diverse learners. Recommendations are provided for middle and secondary education, professional development, teacher education research and policy. At the center of the book are Eight Guiding Principles developed by the authors through a process that included an extensive review of research and policy literature in literacy and related fields, a comparison of National Standards documents, and visits to the classrooms of 28 middle and high school teachers across the United States. The Principles are broad enough to encompass a variety of contexts and student needs, yet specific enough to offer real support to those involved in program development or policy decisions. They provide an overarching structure that districts and teachers can use to develop site-specific curriculum that is both research-based and designed to meet the needs of the learners for whom they are responsible. Important Text Features: Organized to help readers understand empirically supported principles of practice that can be used to address literacy concerns in today's schools, each chapter that addresses one of the eight Principles follows a similar format: * The Principle is presented along with a brief explanation of the research base and a sample of national standards that support it. * One or more case examples - spanning a wide variety of disciplines, grade levels, and local conditions - provide an in-depth look at the Principle in action. * A well-known adolescent literacy expert offers a response to each case exampls, giving readers an informed view of the importance of the Principle, how it is enacted in the cases, and examples of other work related to the Principle. Discussion questions are provided that can be used for individual reflection or group discussion. Principled Practices for Adolescent Literacy: A Framework for Instruction and Policy is intended as a text for pre-service and in-service upper-elementary, middle and high school literacy methods courses and graduate courses related to adolescent literacy, and as a resource for school district personnel, policymakers and parents.

Cultural Reflections takes the best from a writing process approach and adds a social dimension, demonstrating how to make cultural criticism the driving force in the high school English curriculum. Students carry different baggage than we did when we were in school- what engaged students thirty years ago does not engage them today. Cultural Reflections acknowledges those differences and addresses them in ways that make sense to teachers and keep students interested. Gaughan's work is that of a master teacher, continually developing his craft, drawing insight from his students, and featuring them in his accounts. From him, readers will learn about the importance of names and naming, not only for their students but also for themselves. They will learn new ways to think about language and the racist, sexist, and political assumptions that sometimes underlie the words we use. And they will see how teaching thematically removes the curricular constraints imposed by chronological approaches to literature. The book will help broaden teachers' notions of what constitutes legitimate texts to include not only young adult and contemporary multicultural texts, but audio and video texts as well. Preservice and inservice English teachers will find in Cultural Reflections a compelling vision for rethinking what "English" is or can be. Tom Romano writes in the foreword, "After reading it, you might revise your teaching. You might take charge in a new way."

The Reading Apprenticeship (RA) framework has received national recognition as an effective, research-based instructional approach that supports all students in successfully engaging with and learning from academic texts. First introduced in Reading for Understanding by Ruth Schoenbach et al., the approach is based on a program with a proven record of success in boosting the reading levels of urban high school students. Emphasizing social, personal, cognitive, and knowledge-building tools, the Reading Apprenticeship approach can be useful to teachers in any content area classroom. In Rethinking Preparation for Content Area Teaching, Jane Braunger and her co-authors make the case for incorporating the Reading Apprenticeship instructional model into secondary teacher preparation programs. Arguing that teacher education programs need to foster a broader understanding of adolescent literacy, especially if teachers are to help their students read in discipline-specific ways, the authors show how RA can serve to strengthen content-based instruction, how elements of the model can be embedded in teacher preparation curricula, and what types of course activities enable new teachers to understand and practice this approach. ?Finally, a book to help teacher educators who are called upon to teach the course ?Reading in the Content Areas.? In reading this book, I felt I had struck the proverbial goldmine: terrific course projects that will model for pre-service and in-service teachers precisely the kinds of metacognitive and discipline-based strategies that will be engaging and effective for their future students.? --Linda Miller Cleary, professor of English education, Morse Alumni Professor of Distinguished Teaching, University of Minnesota, Duluth ?Finally, a book on content area literacy with a bigger vision concerning what it means for adolescents to read in the disciplines and how teachers can support such reading.? --Stephen B. Kucer, associate professor of language and literacy education, Division of Curriculum and Teaching, Fordham University-Lincoln Center ?Braunger and colleagues offer a set of practices for engaging preservice teachers in learning how to use literacy in content teaching. Their approach is a vast improvement over former models of content-area literacy teacher education. The book is thick with resources, strategies, and reflective practices, and I look forward to using it as a resource for my own teacher education and professional development practices in large urban middle schools and high schools.? --Elizabeth Birr Moje, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor Educational Studies, University of Michigan ?Unique in content area texts, the instructional strategies depicted in this work are grounded in a coherent theoretical frame and presented in real-life classroom complexities. I see many ways of using and adapting the assignments and classroom practices in my own preservice and graduate courses.? --Jayne DeLawter, professor of reading and language education, Sonoma State University ?It is refreshing to read a book geared for teaching preservice and practicing teachers that respects the knowledge they bring to the classroom and builds upon their abilities to take critical and inquiring stances on content area literacy.? --Robert Anthony Fecho, associate professor of teacher education, University of Georgia

We Do Language builds on the authors’ highly acclaimed first collaboration, Understanding English Language Variation in U.S. Schools, and examines the need to integrate linguistically informed teaching into the secondary English classroom. The book meets three critical goals for preparing English educators to ensure the academic success of their students. First, the book helps educators acquire a greater knowledge of language variation so they may teach their students to analyze the social, cultural, and linguistic dimensions of the texts they read in class. Second, the chapters provide specific information about language varieties that students bring with them to school so that educators can better assist students in developing the literacy skills necessary for the Common Core State Standards. Third, the text empowers educators to build their linguistic awareness so they may more fully understand, respect, and meet the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students. We Do Language features concrete strategies, models, and vignettes, as well as classroom materials developed by English educators for English educators. It is essential reading for anyone interested in learning about the role that language plays in the experiences of students, both in secondary and postsecondary environments. “Full of advice and support for walking hand-in-hand with students into imaginative ways of understanding the realities of language variation, this book is pure joy for teachers and college counselors. Even more important is the guarantee that when these educators embrace the humanity and philosophy so touchingly illustrated by the authors, the intrigue of thinking deeply about speaking, writing, and reading is sure to follow for students.” —Shirley Brice Heath, Margery Bailey Professor of English & Dramatic Literature and Professor of Linguistics, Emerita, Stanford University “We Do Language is an enabling tool for helping teachers and those who prepare them to face—perhaps better than we ever have—the challenge of schooling in the English/language arts for the 21st century.” —From the Foreword by Jacqueline Jones Royster, Ivan Allen Chair in Liberal Arts and Technology and Dean, Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, Georgia Institute of Technology “Long overdue and much needed. African American English is here to stay, and this book affirms and supports educators and African American students, their language, and their culture. I can't thank the authors enough for writing this powerful, thought provoking, and critical analysis of language variation.” —Donna Ford, Harvie Branscomb Distinguished Professor of Special Education and Teaching and Learning, Peabody College of Education, Vanderbilt University Anne H. Charity Hudley is associate professor of education, English, linguistics, and Africana studies at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Christine Mallinson is associate professor in the Language, Literacy, and Culture Program and affiliate associate professor in the Gender and Women’s Studies Program at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC).
