Partner Learning: Concept and Rationale.
Pierce, Mary M.; And Others
The collaborative teaching/learning model encompasses peer and cross age tutoring, as well as team teaching, consulting, and professional pairing on the part of teachers, and focuses on learning as a cooperative rather than competitive process for nondisabled and disabled students. Rewards accrue to the tutee (such as increased individualized attention, influence of a role model, and gains in self esteem) as well as to the tutor (including increased competence in academic areas and improved social skills). The teacher is given such benefits as increased opportunity for individualizing, development of partnerships with other teachers, greater attention given to low performers, and development of more positive attitudes.
