CONTENT: EnglishTEACHING STRATEGY: Reciprocal TeachingWHAT WILL BE TAUGHT USING THIS STRATEGY: Is Milk a HealthFood?
Reciprocal TeachingIf teachers who want to move instruction from delivery todiscovery, reciprocal teaching is an excellent choice. As an approach thatallows students to directly assist with the discovery of material and thesubsequent construction of meaning, the instructional routine is ideally meantfor the classroom intent for putting learning in the hands of the learner(e.g., Little & Richards, 2000).A review of 16 studies on reciprocal teaching suggests that it increasescomprehension, achievement, and standardized test scores (Rosenshine &Meister, 1994).What is reciprocal teaching and why is it so effective? Reciprocal teachingprovides students opportunities to practice cognitive strategies-summarizing, questioning, clarifying, and prediction- to understand text(Palinscar & Brown, 1984).

ObjectiveObjective(s) w/ proficiency level: Students Will Be Able To- state if milk is ahealth food utilizing Reciprocal Teaching with their peers with a minimum of85% accuracy.
Technology: Smart boardMaterials Needed: Is Milk a Health Food four paragraph essay, high-lighter, smart board.Technology Used
Do Now: Students will be notified that there are four parts to ReciprocalTeaching. Students will briefly be asked to take 10 minutes to write downwhat they know about milk as a health food.EEL students will review Is Milk a Health Food in both languages and writedown what they know about milk as a health food.Do Now Activity
Vocabulary: reciprocal, summarize, question, clarify, predictStudents will review vocabulary words.Students will identify the components of reciprocal teaching.Students will read Is Milk a Health Food handout.Students will have their reciprocal teaching conversation with their peersabout the Milk passage.Opening (Teaching)
Modifications: EEL students will be have a copy of the handout in bothlanguages, be put in the groups which will help with the language barrier aswell as vocabulary flash cards in both languages.Modifications
Work Period (Student Activities hands-on, inquiry bases, problem-solving):Each student in the group will select a role out of the fourcomponents (summarize, question, clarify and predict) usinghighlighters provided to emphasize where needed.The students will read the selection and stop where I have indicatedin the text for them to have their reciprocal teaching conversationabout the Milk passage with their group.Students will take turns supplying their section of the handout to thegroup. (For example whoever summarized in the first reading may bethe person to question in the second reading etc.)Work Period(students)
ClosingClosing:Students will identify how reciprocal teaching can help themanalyze reading selections by following a simple comprehensionprocess.Students will be given another handout entitled The NextPresident’s First Priority. Students will elaborate and performreciprocal teaching amongst their group highlighting eachcomponent as they read.
Evaluation/Assessment/Evidence of Learning:Once the students have finished their passages, students will raise theirhand and say what each component of reciprocal teaching entails as itpertained to the reading selection. Their answers will be used asassessment tools to provide evidence of learning.Evaluation
