Fostering Peer Learning in the College Classroom.
Petonito, Gina
Teaching Sociology, v19 n4 p498-501 Oct 1991
Presents techniques for encouraging peer learning in the college classroom. Discusses icebreaking exercises, ways to encourage total participation, and methods for dealing with grade anxiety. Argues that, with peer learning, students learn to develop their own resources for learning. Urges testing that calls for application of theoretical perspectives rather than memorization of definitions. (DK)
