Identify students in reciprocal teaching groups with these handy name cards. Simply print out on heavy paper or cardstock and fold in half. One side identifies the role, the other side reminds students of what their individual duties and responsibilities are. Both a color and a black/white version are included.
Included are 6 roles: reader, interrogator, connector, predictor, summarizer, and clarifier. I've modified the basic reciprocal teaching format to include two extra roles, the reader and the connector, in order to accommodate the different texts we read and different sizes of groups. Use some or all of these roles as students read texts in their groups.
