Reciprocal Questioning
The teacher leads the whole class in silently reading a segment of
text.
Students then ask questions of the teacher about the content of the
section of text they read.
Next, students and teacher change roles.
They all read the next section of the text silently.
When they finish the second segment of text, the teacher questions
the students.
They take turns back and forth alternating between questioning and
responding.
As the process continues, students learn to imitate the teacher's
questioning behavior.
