  • Read aloud first four paragraphs of Navigating the Cs of Change Reciprocal teaching and Internet reciprocal teaching share core values (i.e., gradual release of responsibility, group discussion and sharing)Phase 1 example: In small groups, the students had to choose appropriate key word searches. Groups shared their strategies for answering the question with the whole class. Next, students recorded how many search results they retrieved when using different combinations of keywords. The teachers then demonstrated how to use a basic Boolean search.Phase 2: moves from searching to critical evaluation and synthesis skills. Teachers challenged students to find information on the Internet connected to what they had been reading in class perhaps through an Internet scavenger hunt. Students share their search strategies with the class. Students use Instant Messaging to share strategies, ideas, and tips. Students might peek over a shoulder of a classmate. A whole class debriefing is held to share new strategies for seeking information online. For example, students searched for articles about zoos and a recent current event. Students had to find 5 to 7 articles and study differences among news articles, blogs, and editorials. In a follow-up student groups had to find websites that criticized or supported zoos and rank them on a continuum of usefulness and truthfulness. Students posted to a blog comments about the strategies they used to evaluate websites. Students chose and wrote about their position on zoos. This can be done with text, video, and audio sources online.Phase 3: This requires clear questions, multiple reliable sources, citations, and a final product that communicates that information to others. Develop a research question, form possible arguments, generate a list of keywords. Students choose three websites and explain why these three sources were more truthful and useful. Students put findings into a presentation.
