The Effects of Peer Tutoring on Writing Improvement in a Combined Kindergarten-First Grade Class.
Tucker, Anne
A study investigated whether peer tutoring in writing would lead to writing improvement. In a kindergarten-first grade classroom three children were tutored by fellow students, while three other students worked alone. The children's writing samples were collected and evaluated in three areas: spelling, longer sentences, and greater number of words in the piece. Results indicated that of the three children who worked with a tutor, two showed much improved writing while the third improved a little. Of the three students writing alone, all remained at about the same level. (SR)
