Reciprocal reading is a well-researched and highly effective small-group instructional activity that was designed to support students who can decode but have difficulty comprehending what they read. The main purpose of Reciprocal reading is improving comprehension. 

Book clubs (literature circles) are a student-centred activity that involves small groups of students reading the same novel. This provides the opportunity for students to read, reflect, discuss and respond to books in an authentic and natural way. Book clubs allow students to work both individually and collaboratively to gain meaning of the text. 

In this workshop, Sheena and Louise will share practical ideas for setting up these two valuable strategies for fluent readers. Participants will experience being part of a book club and a Reciprocal reading group.
