For my TRP, I researched how reciprocal teaching affects students’ abilities to perform 4 key reading strategies: clarifying, summarizing, questioning, and clarifying. The pre and post test data I collected indicates that my students (all except 1) improved their abilities to summarize, question, and predict. From conducting the research in my classroom, I definitely want to use reciprocal teaching with my future middle school students. As I walked around the room observing my students, I witnessed proficient and advanced readers modeling the reading strategies for struggling readers, students helping one another understand the text, and students taking on a leadership roles. I firmly believe that my classroom became more student-centered as a result of reciprocal teaching. When I use reciprocal teaching with my middle school students, I plan to make the following modifications: spend more time teaching the strategies, especially summarizing and questionings; determine the purpose or eliminate the role of the clarifier; and require that each student write a summary that they share with their group members.
