Collaborative Reading Quads!

One of my favorite collaborative reading strategies! This strategy helps students process and work through their reading (especially difficult texts) while working collaboratively.

I am also on the lookout for new fun ideas for students to read beyond the outdated "round robin" or "popcorn" style. If you are looking for an alternative I suggest you try this one out.







I hope you enjoy the strategy! Let me know what you think in the comments below :)

You may download the strategy HERE .

  1. Looks good! I work with a group of readers who struggle. I'm always on the look out for different strategies to utilize. Do you happen to have a printable of this strategy, rather than just screenshots? (My teaching partner prefers printouts to refer to.)

    Thank you!

  2. So simple, but so effective. I am trying to think of a fifth role because already sit in teams of five and I'd love to use this strategy without having to move too many people around. Thanks for sharing, Stacy @ http://new-in-room-202.b;ogspot.com

  3. I found your blog through the state bloggers site. I love this strategy. I teach fifth grade and many of my students are struggling readers. I think this strategy will work with them. Thanks for sharing. I'm your newest follower.

  4. This is an interesting idea. I will try it out in my guided reading groups. Even though I teach first, I think they can do it! I might try to make picture cards for each of the roles. In my groups of 5, I will double up on the questioner job.

    Thanks for sharing!
