Key Ideas in Reciprocal Teaching
  • Reciprocal teaching involves interactive discussion.
    • Students should be doing more interacting and discussing than writing...use written templates only as a tool to aid in their discussions.
  • The four strategies should be used together.
    • Good readers use the four strategies fluidly as they read. While you may introduce or reinforce the four strategies individually, move quickly to incorporate all four strategies.
  • Reciprocal teaching is not just for the Literacy block.
    • Use reciprocal teaching in other content areas that require reading, including social studies, science, health, etc.
  • Reciprocal teaching is more than once a week.
    • Reciprocal teaching is most effective if students participate in the strategies 2-3 times per week.
