Learners work in pairs to read and summarize what they are reading. Using the Flip-flop paired partner process, readers work with each other to comprehend, summarize, and support each other’s reading, vocabulary practice, writing & literacy learning journey. When the Comprehension Buddies process is faithfully implemented learners are 100% engaged. Retention and transfer to long-term memory is higher.
The Flip-flop Buddy bookmarks have a reminder of how to do take turns reading or speaking and help learners remember who is Buddy A and who is Buddy B. Combine these with the Sum it Up language support menu learners stay engaged and work on academic langue and respectful discourse.
