Reciprocal Teaching

Kia ora whanau!

As part of our Inquiry Based Literacy programme, we have been working on Reciprocal Teaching. This approach refers to an activity in which students become the teacher in small group reading sessions. Students learn the four reading strategies of predicting, clarifying, questioning and summarising.

The text they read this week was called ‘Food moulds – Are moulds dangerous?’, which is linked to our Living World topic. They will learn about how moulds grow and how this affects humans. They will also be growing their own moulds in class!

Below are photos of students working in their cooperative learning groups.
