Introduction session to Reciprocal Reading!
This was inspired by my senior teacher who is running a Teaching Inquiry into Learning Talk.
I realised that my students were talking however, they weren't developing their understanding because it wasn't contextualised and there were very little in-depth thinking involved.
So I questioned myself and thought, how can I make sure that the boys were engaged and involved using the learning context.
This led me to my trial of Reciprocal teaching as I have not run this before.
I introduced Reciprocal Reading to my target group and will be running this every day for the rest of this term.
Will be reassessing students' reading age using running records every two weeks.
