ClassWide Peer Tutoring. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"ClassWide Peer Tutoring" is a teaching strategy that involves the entire class in tutoring using a game format. "ClassWide Peer Tutoring" typically uses existing curriculum materials and can be adapted across different grade levels and content areas. The class is divided into two competing teams, and pairs of students are formed within each team. The tutor presents the content stimulus (e.g., a word to be spelled, a math problem) to the tutee. The tutee responds both orally and in writing. The tutor evaluates the tutee's performance, provides corrective feedback, and awards points for the performance. Tutor and tutee roles are exchanged within each session. Points for each student are publicly posted and added to determine the winning team of the day. The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) identified eight studies of "ClassWide Peer Tutoring" for English language learners that were published or released between 1983 and 2009. One study is out of the scope of the English Language Learners review protocol because it has an ineligible study design. Three studies are out of the scope of the English Language Learners review protocol because they are not a primary analysis of the effectiveness of an intervention. Two studies are out of the scope of the English Language Learners review protocol because the outcomes are not within the domains specified in the protocol. Two studies are out of the scope of the English Language Learners review protocol because the intervention examined is not implemented in a way that falls within the scope of the review; the intervention is bundled with other components.
