Reading Together
 
Peer teaching is a powerful model for improving student performance, both for the older tutor and the younger tutee. Research shows struggling students show far greater increases in academic achievement when they learn collaboratively, rather than in traditional classrooms. The one-on-one bond:
  • fosters strong peer relationships
  • encourages social and emotional development
  • promotes self-esteem, leadership and communication
  • develops creative and critical thinking
Learning Together gives student tutors the training, structure and support they need to get measurable results as they build caring bonds with younger students. Tutors also practice and strengthen their own skills. Benefits to tutors include gains in reading and/or math skills, enhanced peer relations, improved classroom behavior and attendance, and gains in independence, cooperation and organizational skills.

CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
