Reciprocal Teaching

Reciprocal teaching is an instructional approach where students take turns leading group discussions to improve reading comprehension. The method involves four main strategies: predicting, questioning, clarifying, and summarizing. In reciprocal teaching, students work in small groups, with each member taking on the role of teacher at different points. This collaborative approach helps students develop metacognitive skills, enhances their understanding of texts, and promotes active engagement with reading material. Teachers model the strategies initially, then gradually transfer responsibility to the students.
