Students As Teachers.
Johnson, Stuart R.
Drawing from research in the areas of education and sociology, the author has developed a rationale and three models for using students as teachers and counselors. That students taught and/or counseled by other students will benefit from the experience has been demonstrated in recent research, but the present proposal differs in that it does not require the students who teach or counsel to be academically superior, and the greatest change in desired behavior is predicted for the counselor or tutor, not the counselee or tutee. The models included are for student counseling, a freshman English composition course, and a biology course. The objectives, procedures, and a plan for evaluation are provided for each model. These theory-derived guidelines were developed to assist educational planners to deliberately capitalize on the influence which peers are known to exert on each other, and the evaluation plans make it possible to determine whether the programs have their intended effect.
