Peer Tutoring Research (Part 1)

Is it important for you to use evidence to inform the use of a new pedagogy?

In the previous section you looked at what teachers said about the impact and use of paired reading. You also began to look at the evidence base that exists to suggest that as a programme it is a useful intervention to undertake with your students. This research included a survey of teachers and observations made in 200 classrooms.

In this step you are asked to:

  • Read the two papers below from previous research projects.

  • Summarise the findings, and

  • Think about how you can use this evidence in your professional practice.

The research papers for you to read are provided in PDF format below.

If you have any questions about the research papers please ask your mentors!
