Reciprocal Teaching Animations

As part of our whole school professional development this year, there has been a major focus on Reciprocal Teaching. We explored in depth the strategies of predicting, clarifying, questioning and summarising.

I discovered an online program called GoAnimate that allows you to create animations. You can buy the full version, however, you are able to access part of the site on the free version (which is what I used to make the following animations). There is also a education version for students to use, as well, with more 'kid friendly' scenes and characters.

Using the program, I created animations to introduce the reciprocal teaching strategies. Feel free to use them in your classroom as appropriate :)
