What is reciprocal learning?
-it's a kind of cooperative learning
-students work in pairs to 'coach' each other through problems
-each student has the answers to check their partner's work
-works best for review and practice (not for introducing new material)
Why reciprocal learning?
-students get more attention than one teacher can give
-encourages student independence and responsibility
-provides an opportunity for the teacher to work with a small group for reteaching or enrichment while other students are actively engaged in productive practice
-teamwork challenges at the end allow for higher order thinking and application of the skills they just practice
-perfect for encouraging explaining your strategies and thinking
