PeerLearning.net enables teachers to: (1) provide a more powerful peer learning experience through greater design fidelity in peer learning lessons, and (2) provide peer learning more frequently, with less stress, and a great likelihood of success, through greater instructional support.
During peer learning lessons, students are more likely to promote the success of one another through instrumental and emotional support and sharing of ideas and resources. These positive social interactions lead to greater social acceptance and more positive relationships among students. Out of these positive peer relations come improved behavior, social-emotional skills, mental health, and academic achievement.
PeerLearning.net enhances instructional quality using evidence-based small-group lessons, while also providing many of the benefits of external curriculum-based programs, including bullying prevention, drug and alcohol use prevention, and social-emotional learning.
