Product Description
Reciprocal teaching refers to an instructional activity in which students become the teacher in small group reading sessions. Teachers model, then help students learn to guide group discussions using four strategies: summarizing, question generating, clarifying, and predicting. Once students have learned the strategies, they take turns assuming the role of teacher in leading a dialogue about what has been read.

Why use reciprocal teaching?
It encourages students to think about their own thought process during reading.
It helps students learn to be actively involved and monitor their comprehension as they read.
It teaches students to ask questions during reading and helps make the text more comprehensible.

I created and laminated this visual organiser for students to keep close by when reading and taking part in the reciprocal teaching process.
