Genre: 
What are the features of a school change model? Can these characteristics be captured and shared with other schools? How can all members of the school community work together to effect change? In this four-part series, teachers and administrators explore specific ideas for implementing an apprenticeship literacy model that includes on-the-job experiences in five critical areas: assessing change over time in reading and writing progress colleague coaching and mentoring teams in the classroom school-embedded professional development a curriculum that uses literacy as a means for monitoring and promoting school-wide changes built-in accountability for assessing student (and program) performance. The model is illustrated across four schools and seven classrooms. At a time when comprehensive literacy models are more important than ever, this staff development series provides schools with guidance for getting results that are long lasting and self-extending.
