Abstract: 
The concept of Rapid Collaborative Knowledge Improvement (RCKI) refers to
quick cycles of knowledge improvement in the short duration of a classroom lesson. We
explore the role of RCKI in language learning in our school-based design research by working
with teachers to co-design and enact lessons in classrooms. We design a model, called the
Funnel Model, to provide a scaffolding structure to enable RCKI practices in the context of
reading comprehension. Starting with a stage of individual brainstorming, the model leads to
stages of intra-group and inter-group knowledge improvement. The design and
implementation of three cycles of RCKI activities in GroupScribbles (GS) supported
classroom environment are provided to illuminate the flexibility and diverse uses of the model.
