Reciprocal Teaching & Learning

Reciprocal Teaching & Learning

Reciprocal teaching broadly refers to classroom methods in which the instructor models a structured dialogue exploring a text or a concept, and then guides students to lead similar dialogues.

Applying Reciprocal Teaching & Learning

Inadvertently, students identify particular people – parents, coaches, teachers, etc. – as key reason for them being here.  In-turn students are challenged to be that influential person for a disenfranchised high school student.  The learning they receive in the classroom is then reciprocated to the high-school student with them acting as the teacher.
