Reciprocal reading is a research-based instructional activity where students lead their own small reading group. Students are given the following roles - leader, predictor, clarifier, questioner, summariser/summarizer.
This resource is useful for implementing reciprocal reading in your classroom.
This resource contains:
→ Bookmarks outlining each role and sentence starters. There are 2 versions of bookmarks - one detailed and the other more simplified!
→ Student poster outlining the order of roles. I display this on a clipboard folder near the group area.
→ PowerPoint to introduce the concept and roles. The last slide is titled 'Expectations' and is editable for teachers to outline their own expectations relating to routine.
→ Group evaluation rubric
→ Learning log (can be done as a worksheet, or group members complete a section each and assemble as a poster).
The resource is entirely in full black and white, and looks stunning printed onto different colored paper (and saving you ink as well!).
Both U.S. and AU English spelling included!
Note: this resource uses the term 'clicks and clunks' to monitor for meaning. It also features the following order of roles: predictor, clarifier, summariser, questioner.
Reciprocal reading is the work of Oczuks (2003) and Palinscar & Brown (1984).
