Abstract of Chapter 3
Reciprocal Teaching in Whole-Class Sessions
Reciprocal Teaching at Work
Lori D. Oczkus
In this chapter, you will learn how to dramatically improve students' reading comprehension using reciprocal teaching in whole-class settings using any materials, including basals, novels, and nonfiction. You'll learn how to ensure student success with the four foundations scaffolding, think-alouds, cooperative learning, and metacognition. The Four Door Chart serves as a formative assessment to guide your instruction. You'll learn how to put students in control of the strategies and promote their independence with engaging lessons including Which One Do We Need? Name That Strategy! Pass the Mat, and Cooperative Group Summaries.
