Professional Development Opportunity This Friday
Join us for the Reading Apprenticeship Professional Development Day on Friday, March 7th from 8:30 am -2:30 pm in the Hearthside Lounge (across from Bookstore). Free lunch and refreshments provided!
Reading Apprenticeship (RA) is designed for and applies to ALL disciplines (not just language arts). Do you assign any readings in your classes? Would you like to help students get more out of the readings you do assign? If so, Reading Apprenticeship applies to you. RA is a framework for inquiry which helps students learn discipline-specific habits of mind and approach reading as problem solving. These workshops are designed to help instructors of all disciplines create scaffolds for texts that allow students to find their way "in." Bring a course syllabus and textbooks, and get ready to work with colleagues to deepen the metacognitive conversation in your classroom.
This event is sponsored by 3CSN (www.3csn.org). CSN is a professional development organization in CA which has developed reading apprenticeship and they are happy to be sharing their expertise with staff and faculty at Foothill College.
