Peer Tutoring: An Effective Instructional Strategy.
This review examines the literature addressing the concept of peer tutoring. Journal articles and education documents written within the last 10 years that discussed peer tutoring were considered. The evidence reviewed overwhelmingly supported the use of peer tutoring and discussed it as an effective instructional strategy. The key points that were proclaimed by peer tutoring advocates were enhanced academic and social benefits to students with and without disabilities. Advocates also encouraged the use of peer tutoring to help meet the educational needs of students with and without disabilities. However, educators interested in implementing peer tutoring practices should make certain that students are properly trained in both roles, the tutor and the tutee roles. (Contains 25 references.)
