2. Cognitive Apprenticeship

2.1. Brings students through authentic activities that will allow them to develop their specific skills related to the bigger question at hand

2.2. Students learn through modeling of experts and world processes

2.2.1. Students learn through the verbal interactions they have with the expert and through the observations they make of each other.

2.3. Coaching and Scaffolding are important structures to have in place to assist the students.

2.4. It is important that the students are asked to reflect on their learning

2.4.1. Reflection allows the students to look back at what they've done in an effort to strengthen their understanding

2.5. Exploration is where Cognitive Apprenticeship differs from regular apprenticeships

2.5.1. Students should be asked to manipulate data/information and use it to problem solve world applicable events. This process should be a gradual one.

8. Encourages students to reflect on their own processing

9. Prompts students to be active participants in their reading comprehension by asking questions and holding discussions
