Thanks to a mini-grant from the Georgia Reading Association awarded in February 2006, I had the opportunity to make a positive impact on my teacher education students' knowledge base and use of Reciprocal Teaching with their elementary students in reading comprehension. The grant allowed me to purchase 21 copies of Reciprocal Teaching at Work (Oczkus, 2003) and one copy of the companion video, Reciprocal Teaching at Work: Strategies for Improving Reading Comprehension (Oczkus, 2005) to use in my classes. In this article, I describe the qualitative action research project, "Getting into Reciprocal Teaching," as it was implemented during the Spring and Fall semesters, 2006, through two of my reading classes at North Georgia College & State University.
