Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Reading comprehension; Reading (Middle school);
The purpose of Reciprocal Teaching is to improve reading comprehension through the use of cognitive strategies. The strategies teach students to think about what they are reading and learning. It also promotes collaboration between the student and teacher in the learning process.
This study was designed to evaluate the implementation of Reciprocal Teaching at Central Middle School. If the initiative is to be successful, implementation should result in higher test scores in reading comprehension. The data from this study will tell us what we are doing well and what we can prove regarding the implementation of Reciprocal Teaching. As other schools struggle with No Child Left Behind, they could benefit from looking at this study to see if Reciprocal Teaching would be good Professional Development for them.
