The Student as Teacher.
Raushenbush, John
The Independent School Bulletin, v27 n2 p35-6 Dec 1967
Through "preparing-to-teach," students at Fountain Valley School, Colorado Springs, felt that they learned material better and gained confidence and personal satisfaction. Their interest in teaching began with two unrelated projects--(1) an "older brother" project in which 11th- and 12th-grade boys tutored elementary students from predominantly Negro neighborhoods, and (2) a classroom project in which students gave 15-minute lectures and led discussions on their research papers. These projects led to the inclusion of a two-part program in the senior high English curriculum. In the first part, students lectured and led discussions on topics relevant to a number of assigned works from classic and modern literature. The other part involved assigning two seniors to a ninth- or 10th-grade English class where they (1) observed the class for 3 days, (2) completed evaluation forms on the class, and (3) collaborated with the teacher on preparing lesson plans for three class periods.
