Positive Peer Interaction.
Miller, Helen L.
Described are techniques teachers can use to help children learn the language and strategies important to positive peer interaction. These techniques include observation of students, building classroom order from rules formulated by students, teacher intervention to teach alternative ways of solving disputes, and dramatization of problematic situations. Positive peer interaction evolves slowly, but once the children have the language skills and strategies necessary for positive interaction, they have a tool for communicating and for learning. (RH)
