    Doing What Works

Watch a teacher lead a "Reciprocal Teaching" group lesson. Using this multi-strategy approach, students learn to lead discussions about text. In this video clip students are beginning to learn to use the strategies and the teacher is very involved in coaching them, however, the ultimate goal is for students to discuss the text with one another and to use the strategies without assistance.
