6 years of data on the implementation of Reciprocal Teaching – RT3T™ within large Māori, Pacific and multi-cultural schools, –2020.

Results show a marked impact on achievement – after just a few weeks, with upward trends continuing, even after holiday and COVID breaks, and into NCEA.

RT3T™ schools are continuing further with the intensive coaching – extending into every year level continuously or more variably, from year 4 to year 13, with ākonga continuing to show progress each year.

Three RT3T™ secondary schools are reporting that upward trends are continuing as cohorts progress through school, with improvement seen in NCEA and scholarship results.

These 2017 results show RT3T™ can work as a powerful pedagogy for all ākonga – irrespective of prior achievement level and ethnicity.

RT3T™ has immediate and delayed acceleration leaps – even after the summer holiday slump, reversing the slump – shown by the high green bar for each class.
