Question 1
  • Do you currently use cross age peer tutoring in
    your schools?

8
Learning Together is Cross age peer learning
  • 2 struggling students
  • Both grow
  • academically
  • socially
  • emotionally

9
Learning Together is the power of 2
  • The tutor/tutee relationship is
  • Engaging
  • Empowering
  • Effective

10
Research Based
Some studies have even shown the effects for
peer tutors are greater than for learnersthe
effects were strongest for students who were
younger, in inner city schools, from poor
families or members of minority groups.

11
An effect size of d 1.0 indicates an increase
of one standard deviation on the outcome.
A one standard deviation increase is typically
associated with advancing childrens
achievement by two to three years.
Hattie, 2009
12
The Effects of Peer Tutoring
  • Cross-age tutors (d 0.79) were more effective
    than same-age peers (d 0.52) and adult tutors
    (d 0.54)

Hattie, 2009
  • The magnitude of peer-tutoring effects did not
    differ according to whether special needs or
    non-special needs students acted as tutors or
    were doing the teaching

Pyramid of Interventions
Tier 3 (1-7) INTENSIVE Individualized
interventions, intensive assessments for
students with insufficient response
to evidence-based interventions
Tier 2 (5-15) TARGETED Specific prevention,
remediation interventions, diagnostic assessments
for students whose academic performance/behavior
lag behind the norm for their grade and
educational setting

instruction and assessments, positive behavior
supports for all students
