ABSTRACT
The article discusses the method of reciprocal teaching, in which teachers and students engage in conversation to reach an understanding of a text. Several aspects of reciprocal teaching are explored including predicting, questioning, clarifying, and summarizing. The author draws on her experience as a third- and fourth-grade teacher to emphasize the usefulness of guided reading, small group instruction, and the reading of expository texts to help her students understand the value of questioning. The use of reciprocal teaching methods for English learners (ELs) is examined.
