Hands-On Reciprocal Teaching: A Comprehension Technique
Stricklin, Kelley
Reading Teacher, v64 n8 p620-625 May 2011
Reciprocal teaching is a researched-based technique that utilizes the comprehension strategies of predicting, clarifying, questioning, and summarizing. This article provides methods of incorporating characters, props, and visual and hands-on tools to encourage and motivate students to learn through reciprocal teaching. Teachers are given activities to use while implementing reciprocal teaching that require very little prep time, but are highly appealing to a range of learners. Responsibilities of both the teacher and the students are addressed, as well as the importance of discussion and assessment. (Contains 3 figures.)
