The Peer Teaching Program of Community College Studies.
Miami-Dade Junior Coll., FL.
During the fall semester of 1971, a peer teaching program was started in biology, physics, psychology, social science and reading classes at Miami-Dade Junior College (Florida). While the specific responsibilities of the peer teachers differed in each class, generally they were expected to assist the students in learning basic skills and supplement the teacher by working individually with students having difficulty. Peer teachers had to demonstrate some skills in the subject and then received a brief orientation to their work; at the completion of the class, peer teachers received grades and a written evaluation. Included are graphs showing the changes in students' grades before and after working with peer teachers. This document is mainly a collection of statements by instructors assisted by peer teachers, personal reactions of students toward their peer teachers, and reflections by the peer teachers themselves. Each of these groups, for the most part, judged the program to be a success. (LP)
