Reciprocal teaching is a tried-and-true method that is often most associated with literacy. However, it has a very logical place in math!
These Collaborative Math Mats are built on the concept of reciprocal teaching and will get your kids talking about, and thinking about, complex math problems!
Speaking and listening is a critical skill for students to develop and should not be content-area specific. Reciprocal teaching will give your students the scaffolds they need to convey ideas, build-upon and extend the thinking of others, and work cooperatively within a team.
These collaboration mats are guaranteed to increase the quality of your student-to-student interactions.
