I am very excited about this latest version of my work!
This set of ten role cards is designed for guided reading reciprocal teaching groups. This resource draws on the reciprocal teaching, student-generated questioning and comprehension strategy instruction research. Each card includes prompts to scaffold small group guided reading discussions and this resource includes graphic organisers (organizers) for each step in the process.
Teachers may choose the number of cards (or group roles) appropriate for the size of the small group (one card or role for each group member) and the explicit teaching focus.
The cards include the following group roles: Orientating, Predicting, Reading, Clarifying, Questioning, Visualizing, Summarizing, Connecting, Inferring and Giving Feedback. (The “Visualizing” and “Summarizing” cards are included with both a “z” and an “s” in the spelling, so teachers can choose the appropriate spelling for their students).
This resource is based on published research to improve reading comprehension and deep engagement with texts through higher order thinking and close reading.
The graphic organisers (organizers) have been reduced to two per page to save on printing and are they in black and white to save on ink charges.
This resource includes both U.S. and Australian spelling.

This resource is based on my published PhD reading research, so no adaptations or innovations are allowed. The resource was developed as a result of my PhD research.
