Fifth Graders Helping Peers Discuss Texts in Student-Led Groups.
McMahon, Susan I.; Goatley, Virginia J.
Journal of Educational Research, v89 n1 p23-34 Sep-Oct 1995
An investigation was conducted to determine how fifth graders with prior experience in student-led literature discussions assisted peers familiar with teacher-led discussions in basal reading programs. Tapes, observations, and writings of students indicated that students quickly adopted leadership roles, interacted, and helped one another conduct discussions. The teachers monitored student discourse and planned instruction. (SM)
