Reciprocal reading refers to an instructional activity in which pupils become the teacher in small group reading sessions. Teachers model, then help children to learn to guide group discussions using four strategies: summarising, question generating, clarifying, and predicting. Once pupils have learned the strategies, they take turns assuming the role of teacher in leading a dialogue about what has been read.
Why Use Reciprocal Reading?
- It encourages children to think about their own thought process during reading.
- It helps pupils to learn to be actively involved and monitor their comprehension as they read.
- It teaches pupils to ask questions during reading and helps make the text more comprehensible.
