Utay, Carol; Utay, Joe
Journal of Computing in Childhood Education, v8 n2/3 p165-85 1997
Examined effects of combining cross-age tutoring, peer tutoring, cooperative learning, and computer-mediated writing in a peer-assisted learning package on writing skills of second through sixth graders with learning disabilities. Found that the treatment group enjoyed working with partners, asked each other for help, had friendships extending outside the treatment setting, and had improved attitudes toward writing.
