  • Non example-what reciprocal teaching isn’t-not saying go read and write questions, go read and predict-share example about literature circles
  • Reciprocal teaching gives students a structure to develop and share thinking using four reading strategies and gradual release of responsibility
  • RATIONALE – -tell what reciprocal teachingThis strategy is a classic…it’s been around for at least 20 years and has a proven track record. It’s an Oldie but Goodie because it’s:1-easy to implement2-free3-not a program4-uses words and language that kids understand5-makes sense6-it’s a scaffolded structure somewhere between guided reading and literature circles.
  • We’ve all had students who have difficulty interacting with the text as they read which hurts their ability to retell and comprehend the story. Reciprocal teaching is a strategy to get students to “dive” into the text. It encourages the use of reading strategies with small chunks of text.
  • Week by week guide to reciprocal teaching
