Reciprocal teaching refers to an instructional activity that takes place in the form of a dialogue between teachers and students regarding segments of text. The dialogue is structured by the use of four strategies: summarizing, question generating, clarifying, and predicting. The teacher and students take turns assuming the role of teacher in leading this dialogue.

We are beginning to use Reciprocal Teaching in our classrooms. Please feel free to look at the resources we've gathered so far, and share anything you have found!
