Reading for Understanding by Schoenbach, Greenleaf, Cziko, and Hurwitz

As a first year, full-time teacher, the Reading Apprenticeship (RA) program, was one of the first programs I heard of. I would have applied, but the acting Principal of the time didn’t believe in my time management abilities and said “NO.” So, I borrowed the books from a past student and have been teaching myself the strategies. I don’t respond well to “NO.”

Reading for Understanding is the core work that focuses and explains RA. It offers up the initial case study, several strategies for helping struggling readers and readers who wish to expand their skills, and gives specific examples of how these strategies are implemented within not only the English curriculum, but also the curriculum of other content areas.

If you’re looking for a fairly easy read that will give a few pointers on how to get students reading more fluently and in-depth in your classroom, I would highly recommend this book.
