TCC faculty guide about reading apprenticeship resources and techniques

Reading Apprenticeship and RATs

"Educational Postcard" by Ken Whytock is licensed under CC BY-NC 2.0Many students struggle with reading - either they don't comprehend what they've read, can't recall the information read, or avoid reading altogether. WestEd's Reading Apprenticeship® (RA) is a research-based framework for content area literacy instruction. RA is used to empower students to become skilled readers and improve their reading comprehension skills, particularly in content/program-related areas.

In 2015 Tacoma Community College faculty began the process of bringing RA to our campus. Faculty have attended trainings, began teaching RA in their classrooms, and are actively developing professional development for RA.
