  • I used the the strategy of Reciprocal Teaching that helps students critically think about the passage, text, or chapter that they are reading. I am also able to promote cooperative learning between the students. "Reciprocal teaching is a form of social-constructivist learning and cognitive apprenticeship in which students gradually learn key comprehension strategies by imitating and working along with the teacher" (Gunning, 2013, p. 350).Reference:Gunning, T. G. (2013). Creating Literacy Instruction for All Students (8th ed.). Pearson.
