Peer Support Strategies Improving Students' Social Lives and Learning

by Erik W. Carter, Lisa S. Cushing, Craig H. Kennedy

Peer Support Strategies Improving Students' Social Lives and Learning Synopsis

Peer supports really work: they're a great, efficient way to help all students learn, make the most of teacher/ paraprofessional time, and increase the achievement level of challenging students. This is the concise, practical guide every middle and high school needs to implement peer support strategies - including cooperative learning and peer tutoring - to benefit students with moderate to severe disabilities and their peers. With this reader-friendly, step-by-step planning guide from the foremost authorities on peer supports, educators, paraprofessionals, and other school staff will: discover how peer supports are a 'two-way street', boosting the academic outcomes, social skills, and self-esteem of students with disabilities and the peers who support them; determine which students might benefit most from peer supports; and, recruit and match the students most likely to form mutually beneficial relationships.
