Building Academic Literacy: Lessons from Reading Apprenticeship Classrooms, Grades 6-12 by Audrey Fielding, Ruth Schoenbach, Marean Jordan

Boost the Engagement and Achievement of Adolescent ReadersBuilding Academic Literacy: Lessons from Reading Apprenticeship Classrooms, Grades 6-12, features pieces by five middle and high school teachers working with the Reading Apprenticeship instructional framework introduced in Reading for Understanding (Schoenbach et al., Jossey-Bass, 1999). Filled with instructional tips, lesson plans, and curriculum resources, this book offers guidance on conducting Academic Literacy courses using readings from the companion student book-Building Academic Literacy: An Anthology for Reading Apprenticeship (Fielding and Schoenbach, Jossey-Bass, 2003). 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 Readers Handbook and The English Teachers CompanionFollowing 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
