Purposes of the Study

The main purpose of this experimental study was to investigate the effects of

reciprocal teaching on the English reading comprehension and reading strategies of

comprehension of 12th-grade students at Watnuannordit School.

2. investigate whether reciprocal teaching enhances the English reading ability of

both proficient and less proficient students.

3. investigate whether the increase in English reading ability of the experimental

group is significantly higher than the increase of the students in the control group.

4. examine the metacognitive reading strategies the 12th grade students in the

experimental group employed prior to and after reciprocal teaching.
