“Enabling peer teaching in lessons”.







·       When we teach we learn twice
·       Peer teaching has a high effect on learning (Hattie)
·       The aim of the project is to investigate how peer teaching can be developed in the mathematical classroom.

Key Actions

·       Create a set of resources ("You teach - You do") that students can work with collaboratively to teach each other in the classroom.
·       Use these resources within three AS classes using different pairing strategies..
·       Offer theses resources to other teaching staff.

Preliminary findings

·       Students enjoy peer teaching and learning
·       Creating hand written "You teach - You do" sheets is a useful use of lesson planning time.
-       Experienced mathematical teaching staff have been very positive in adopting these resources into their own teaching practice
