training, pointing to the fact that the four strategies in reciprocal teaching were still used
by the students in their reading even after the training.
The studies on reciprocal teaching in ESL and EFL contexts are mostly focused
on university level because students at that higher level can decode words adequately.
Few studies exist on reciprocal teaching at high school level. However, the results from
most of the studies are positive. The students who received reciprocal teaching were
significantly better in reading comprehension than those instructed through other
methods. In addition, those who were part of reciprocal teaching groups showed a
positive attitude toward reciprocal teaching.
