Those Who Can, Tutor: High-Ability Students' Conceptions of Fair Ways to Organize Learning.
Thorkildsen, Theresa A.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v85 n1 p182-90 Mar 1993
In interviews about the fairness of teaching practices, 113 high-ability students aged 6 to 18 years (in 6 age groups) typically chose peer tutoring as the fairest. High-ability students do not emphasize self-interest when evaluating fair practices. Children's evaluations of institutional practices reflect their developing conceptions of social justice. (SLD)
