Active learning – reciprocity

The last learning muscle that I need to share from Guy Claxton’s Building Learning Power is reciprocity.

I have always used superheroes to support BLP.  It gives children a fictional context in which they can join in with and add to.

1Using imaginary and real life learning superheroes can help in promoting all learning behaviours.

By having a superhero for reciprocity, children are given the superheroes remit.  What he is going to help us with.

Then children get children to design their own superhero that has the powers to help Reciprocity Ray carry out his duties.
