Peer Instruction Implementation Manual.
Bialek, Hilton M.; And Others
The Human Resources Research Organization (HumRRO) peer instruction model is presented, providing information for teachers on how to design and implement such a teaching system within Adult Basic Education (ABE) programs. The model presented requires that students meet specific performance criteria before they teach others, and that formats or modules be developed to enable students to understand what they must learn. Chapters include: an Introduction; What Is Peer Instruction?, discussing teaching methods; Why Use Peer Instruction?, discussing its special advantages for educationally disadvantaged students; When to Use Peer Instruction, discussing five minimum conditions which must exist before peer instruction is attempted; Designing a Peer Instruction System, presenting four steps, which include conditions, finding curriculum sources, writing modules, testing and revising modules; Evaluating the Peer Instruction Model, presenting an evaluation form; Putting the Model Into Operation, examining the setting, preparation of the students, priming the teacher/learning chain; Managing the Peer Instruction System, discussing the teacher's role; and, Checklist, presenting an outlined review of key points. An example of teaching experience involving ABE students, peer instruction, and learning how to write checks supplements the text. (LH)
