"When teachers follow the Think2Read programme carefully and are fully committed to it the children make good progress in reading." Dr. Ros Fisher, Exeter University, paper presented at UKLA conference, 2009Think2Read’s step-by-step reciprocal comprehension programme gives children a greater understanding of author's meaning and more ownership of discussion about books through:-

- Encouraging meta-cognition
- Establishing child-generated rather than teacher-generated enquiry
- Encouraging independent enquiry in roles-based reciprocal reading teams.
