What is Peer Partner Learning?

Peer partner learning is a collaborative experience in which students learn from and with each other for individual purposes.

What is its purpose?

Students reflect upon previously taught material by helping peers to learn and, at the same time, develop and hone their social skills.

How can I do it?

Students work together as partners, one functioning as a "doer" and the other as a "helper". The doer performs a task or answers questions; the helper observes and provides feedback and helping information. The doer is the student and the helper takes on the role of teacher. Later, the partners reverse roles.
