Children's Perception of Piggybacking: Partnership in Learning.
Suskind, Diana
"Piggybacking" is a term used to describe the interaction of educational partners such as college students and elementary school students on long-term projects. Younger students' perceptions of such cooperative learning endeavors has emerged as a useful line of inquiry for teachers. This study focused on a social studies piggybacking project between first-graders and early childhood education college students in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. A questionnaire was developed and administered to all children who participated in the piggybacking project from 1991 to 1997. Responses indicated that piggybacking had contributed to the development of a cohesive and caring learning community. (The questionnaire and responses are appended. Contains 10 references.) (EV)
