Peer Partnerships: A Best Practice for Preparing and Empowering Youth
Hood, Antonette W.; Mc Neil, Mary E.
International Journal of Whole Schooling, v1 n2 p36-46 Mar 2005
This article examines the research-based best practice of peer partnerships in schools and communities, as it relates to the principles of Whole Schooling. It also identifies complex issues of peer partnership program accessibility and the multidimensional needs of students and youth. The authors make recommendations that would lead to an increase in peer partnership program opportunities. These partnerships would enhance academic, social, and personal development, and prepare and empower students as they transition into productive membership within their communities. (Contains 2 figures and 2 tables.)
