CSUMB testimonials ​

Nelson Graff, CSUMB Communication Across the Disciplines Director

​​“One of the advantages of Reading Apprenticeship and metacognitive conversation is that students learn strategic thinking and problem solving from each other.”

​​Ryne Leuzinger, CSUMB Research and Instruction Librarian​****​

“Reading Apprenticeship provides a flexible model that can be useful for supporting student engagement with a wide variety of course texts and across disciplines, from FYS to capstone, humanities to STEM.”​

Danielle Burchett, CSUMB Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology

​"Reading Apprenticeship allows instructors to model how we struggle in our comprehension of written material, demonstrating that it's fine to feel confused and how we get through challenging texts."​

​​Swarup Wood, CSUMB SNS Professor and FYS Coordinator​

“I loved the way Reading Apprenticeship pulled implicit strategies for interrogating disciplinary reading out of the faculty at the workshop, and it made them explicitly available to use with our students.”

​​Rebecca Kersnar, CSUMB SNS Lecturer and TLA Faculty Associate​

“Each time I go to a classroom and try this out, students are so engaged in the content and their thinking.”​****Victoria Derr, CSUMB SNS Assistant Professor

“Reading Apprenticeship empowered my students to reflect on and advance their personal strategies for reading within their discipline. Many students were excited by the utility of this approach. I’m looking forward to taking the upcoming RA intensive!”

​More about reading apprenticeship: ​Reading Apprenticeship instructional routines and approaches are based on a framework that describes the classroom in terms of four interacting dimensions that support learning: Social, Personal, Cognitive, and Knowledge-Building. They have been used extensively in community colleges and increasingly in four-year universities.
