Co-ordinators of parent involvement groups and peer tutouring projects should find that this handbook provides a detailed background text to paired learning methods in maths and science. The main focus is upon the long-standing work in maths, with some discussion of the implications for extension into science. The book provides detailed practical guidance on materials, organization and evaluation, and information on related international developments and research findings. It also illustrates how to extend the paired learning methods to more challenging target groups. This text is a companion volume to The Paired Maths Handbook and The Paired Science Handbook.

Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) involves children in school consciously assisting others to learn, and in so doing learning more effectively themselves. It encompasses peer tutoring, peer modeling, peer education, peer counseling, peer monitoring, and peer assessment, which are differentiated from other more general "co-operative learning" methods. PAL is not diluted or surrogate "teaching"; it complements and supplements (but never replaces) professional teaching--capitalizing on the unique qualities and richness of peer interaction and helping students become empowered democratically to take more responsibility for their own learning. In this book, PAL is presented as a set of dynamic, robust, effective, and flexible approaches to teaching and learning, which can be used in a range of different settings. The chapters provide descriptions of good practice blended with research findings on effectiveness. They describe procedures that can be applied to all areas of the school curriculum, and can be used with learners of all levels of ability, including gifted students, students with disabilities, and second-language learners. Among the distinguished contributors, many are from North America, while others are from Europe and Australia. The applicability of the methods they present is worldwide. Peer-Assisted Learning is designed to be accessible and useful to teachers and to those who employ, train, support, consult with, and evaluate them. Many chapters will be helpful to teachers aiming to replicate in their own school environments the cost-effective procedures described. A practical resources guide is included. This volume will also be of interest to faculty and researchers in the fields of education and psychology, to community educators who want to learn about the implications of Peer Assisted Learning beyond school contexts, and to employers and others involved in post-school training.

The Reading for Real Handbook was very well received by both teachers and literacy specialists when it was published in 1992. Since its first publication there have been significant changes in the field of 'reading', not least of which has been governmental demands for higher standards in reading and the resultant National Literacy Strategy (NLS). As well as providing invaluable help for teachers struggling with the National Literacy Strategy and the Literacy Hour, several other new topics of interest are also addressed, including teaching fiction/non-fiction inside and outside the Literacy Hour, integrating reading, writing and spelling work, involving parents, assessment and working with slower readers.

Thinking Reading and Writing details specific structured methods for improving quality and effectiveness in parent, peer and volunteer tutoring. The methods cover reading, thinking, writing and spelling, and are based on decades of work in hundreds of schools with thousands of children, and a mass of research evidence. These practical methods are inexpensive to use, require no special materials or complex technology, are flexible and durable in a wide range of settings, and are compatible with professional instruction of almost any type. Full descriptions of the methods are coupled with detailed advice about successful organization, brief summaries of the relevant research findings, and guidance on local evaluation. The book is linked with a web site containing over fifty free resource materials to help with implementing projects and with staff development presentations, which can be adapted and copied for use by readers (the Thinking Reading Writing or TRW web site - www.dundee.ac.uk/psychology/TRW).
