Involves a teacher and a group of students taking turns to lead a dialogue concerning a text .6Rationale Based on theory and research regarding: :
Metacognitive strategy instruction (teaching students with difficulties how to learn) .
Scaffold instruction (providing support to students in interactive social learning contexts) .
7As students move through school the curriculum becomes increasingly dependent on use of text .Difficulties in comprehension affect progress in almost all areas of learning .Skills often not taught, some students will not acquire them without help .Rationalecontinued ... 8Comprehension strategies Dialogue between teacher and students structured by use of four key strategies which increase the student's active involvement with the text:
Predicting 9Activity # 2Purpose: To become familiar with and understand the new strategy Reciprocal ReadingOrganization : Groups ( 4 members) Strategy : Numbered headsTime : 10 minutesInstructions : 1.Read through the document (Page 1) on Reciprocal reading and provide an outline of the steps using the graphic organizer. 2. Clarifying through discussion

13 Advice For best results, use the strategy with the whole class first when you model the teacher behaviorGradually devolve responsibility to students to share the teacher role within their small group under your overall guidance .Research indicates students need to use this strategy at least twenty times for it to be firmly embedded14Activity 3 -Lesson applicationPurpose: Teachers practice planning for reciprocal readingOrganization: subject groupsTime: 15 minInstruction:Create new groups in subject areasUsing your own current plan resource, plan for a lesson based on this new strategy.15Activity 3 Cross checkingPurpose: To check for understandingOrganization: PairsTime: 5 minInstruction:Recheck the statements on the starter activity and confirm whether you agree or diasagree to the statements.16Cross Check for understandingWhat I think beforeStatement (decide if you agree or not)What I think afterAgree/disagreeA dialogue or discussion between teachers and students regarding segments of textAgree / disagreeAgree/disagreeUses the lower levels of Blooms taxonomy of learningAgree / disagreeAgree/disagreeInvolves mutual exchange of information between groups of learnersAgree / disagreeAgree/disagreeReading text that has been translated so that students can understandAgree / disagreeWhat I think reciprocal teaching / reading could be?AGREEDISAGREEAGREEDISAGREE17Closure Activity - Reflection
