Create an Active Classroom with Reading Apprenticeship
After the success of the online course this past spring, The Center for teaching Excellence is once again offering a special Reading Apprenticeship hybrid course, spanning 6 weeks and available ONLY to SMC Faculty.
The session runs from February 13th through March 24th, 2017.*
Applications must be received no later than Friday, January 13th at 12pm.
Reading Apprenticeship (RA) guides instructors on how to make their content-specific reading strategies visible to their students. It is designed to cover all subject areas, including STEM and CTE. Student benefits include better reading comprehension and test preparedness. Practices enable students to become more engaged and independent readers.
Quick facts from the RA session held last spring:
- 100% of Reading Apprenticeship survey respondents agreed that they would recommend this course to colleagues.
- 94.4% of RA survey respondents agree that the information and presentation of this course were effective in promoting learning.
- 100% of RA survey respondents agreed that this course should be offered again.
What our previous participants have to say:
“I recommend this course to all teachers. It has been life-changing for me.”
“[E]verything I learned will be useful in the classes I teach.”
“This was among the most useful professional development training I have completed in my 13+ years as an educator.”
Faculty are encouraged to apply with colleagues from their department. The Center for Teaching Excellence will pay the cost of the course for participating SMC faculty. Faculty will receive a stipend upon completion of the course*.
