:: Reciprocal reading ::
Reciprocal reading is an approach to reading instruction that develops pupils' ability to comprehend texts and fosters greater independence in reading unfamiliar texts. It can be used to address a range of reading behaviours that get in the way of pupil understanding. It develops pupils' independence and provides them with strategies that help them to interrogate texts systematically to gain meaning. It is a flexible approach that can be used in whole class, modelled or shared reading, guided reading groups and as a reading intervention for pupils that decode well but find comprehension particularly challenging. This course will develop understanding of the principles and strategies of reciprocal reading and will demonstrate how this approach can foster greater levels of independence in engaging with texts, develop pupils’ ability to think and talk about the texts that they read, and provide teachers with opportunities to stretch your pupils whilst developing a love of reading. Delegates will be given the opportunity to participate in a modelled session and then explore how this could be implemented and adapted to suit the needs of their school or class.
By attending the course participants will:
  • gain an understanding of the reciprocal reading approach
  • learn how to implement reciprocal reading in their class and in their school
  • have an opportunity to take part in a reciprocal reading session and reflect on how it might be adapted for the pupils that they teach
Suitable for:
  • Classroom Teachers
  • Early Career Teachers
  • Newly Qualified Teachers
