An Investigation of the Cross-Age Peer Tutoring Process: Some Implications for Instructional Design and Motivation.
Fogarty, Joan L.; Wang, Margaret C.
Elementary School Journal, v82 n5 p451-69 May 1982
Examines the cross-age peer tutoring process from two perspectives--descriptive analysis of verbal interactions, and documentation of academic and attitudinal progress. Particular attention is given to how the peer tutoring process (a) affects friendship and a give-and-take attitude between the tutor and the tutee and (b) serves as a motivating force which yields positive academic and attitudinal progress in students.
