Peer-Mediated Instruction to Support Mathematics Achievement

Peer-mediated instruction is an approach that incorporates peer tutoring in the learning process. Peers work together, alternating in the role of tutor or coach. The tutor provides clear and explicit instruction and models, illustrates mathematical processes, and provides corrective feedback. Peer-mediated instruction can be applied to elementary, middle, and high school settings.
