#5: Group Evaluation Form
The group evaluation form allows students to express their feelings about working in a group. It does not have to be complicated. Simply asking students to write about areas of strength and weakness should be sufficient. Additionally, filling out a group evaluation form is also a great outlet for students who may feel frustrated by their fellow group members.
#6: Self Reflection Rubric
A self reflection rubric gives students a chance to record how they felt about their performance during the reciprocal teaching process. Requiring students to complete a self assessment incorporates skills such as critical thinking, personal responsibility, failure, adaptability, and more. Learning how to successfully reflect on the learning process is a skill that reaches far beyond the process of reciprocal teaching.
The time it takes to create your own reciprocal teaching tool kit will pay off when your students remain on-task and focused for the duration of the lesson.
