This investigation examined the effects of Classwide Peer Tutoring (CWPT), a variation of peer tutoring on the volleyball skills of four 6th grade middle school students purposefully selected from an intact class of 21 students. Participants were average to low skilled males and females. A single subject A-B-A-B withdrawal design was used to examine the effects of CWPT on the number of total and correct trials students performed. The data showed that three of the four students improved their performance of total trials and correct trials during CWPT; however functional relationships were weakened by overlapping data points. These findings extend the literature in a number of ways. First, they provide further validation of CWPT as an effective strategy in physical education settings. Second, the increased engagement in the lesson and correct performances of girls during CWPT represent an important implication for physical education teachers in middle schools. (Contains 1 figure.)
