Dwyer, Sonya Corbin; Tilley, Betty Mercer
Rural Educator, v22 n3 p42-47 Spr 2001
A rural Canadian secondary school developed a cross-age peer-assisted summer program to improve academic achievement and career awareness. Although there was no significant improvement in math grades for female participants, 91 percent of students claimed the program helped them in their present courses. Other outcomes included improved academic self-esteem, social skills, and self-confidence. (TD)
