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 purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of PALS (Peer Assisted Learning Strategies) for students who struggle with reading in first grade. Two groups of children were compared in terms of their reading fluency. The groups included English language learners (ELL) well as native English speakers. One group was instructed using the teacher directed PALS along with PALS partners. The other group was instructed on basal readers, leveled reading books, and one on one phonics instruction. The two groups were instructed by the same teacher, but in different years. There were twenty-one students in the PALS instruction, compared with 19 other students who were not given PALS instruction. The results show that after a complete rotation through PALS partners (56 days) and teacher directed PALS (56 days) there were significant differences between the increases in reading fluency along with the rate of increase in reading fluency. Results show that students participating in the PALS program make significant gains in their reading fluency, confirming the usefulness of the PALS program to reduce the gap between adequate and inadequate first grade readers. All schools with a first grade program should have PALS available for intervention of reading fluency.

Students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) have academic and behavioral deficits that impact their school success. For example, reading achievement of students with EBD is lower than typically developing peers and fails to improve over time without intervention. Despite this, the academic deficits of students with EBD often get overlooked and there are limited evidence-based practices for reading instruction to support them. This study sought to address this limitation by applying the Peer Assisted Learning Strategies (PALS), which has supportive evidence when applied to students with learning disabilities. The study involved eight 5th grade students, three were identified with EBD. The intervention, implemented by the classroom teacher, failed to result in gains in oral reading fluency, comprehension, and targeted social skills due to a variety of factors to be discussed. Limitations and future research are discussed, including considerations for future research.

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the impact and effect of PALS among a group of kindergarten and first grade students. Subjects consisted of 20 kindergarten and first grade students who had been identified by the school district as eligible for special education services or at-risk with academic concerns using the Response to Intervention (RTI) model. Assessment tools were used to identify and target intervention needs. The results indicated that PALS was effective as a tier II supplementary intervention for all kindergarten students at-risk and some students with disabilities. PALS was not equally as effective with first grade students.

Abstract: This study is the case study of Physic II Course for students of Pathumwan Institute of Technology. The purpose of this study is: 1) to develop cooperative learning method of peer assisted learning (PAL), 2) to compare the learning achievement before and after studied magnetic field lesson by cooperative learning method of peer assisted learning. The population was engineering students of Pathumwan Institute of Technology (PIT's students) who registered Physic II Course during year 2014. The sample used in this study was selected from the 72 students who passed in Physic I Course. The control groups learning magnetic fields by Traditional Method (TM) and experimental groups learning magnetic field by method of peers assisted learning. The students do pretest before the lesson and do post-test after the lesson by 20 items achievement tests of magnetic field. The post-test higher than pretest achievement significantly at 0.01 level.

When forum works, it is life changing. When it doesn't, forum can be a frustrating waste of time. The key to success is having a sound process. Focus Forum is a proven process that represents best practices for maximizing the benefits and minimizing the risks of forums. Focus Forum is different than other forum processes in several ways. First, Focus Forum is designed specifically for entrepreneurs. Focus Forums by design move very fast, so members get more done in the same amount of time as members in other types of forum. As a result, Focus Forum provides the highest possible value and benefit for members. And finally, Focus Forums are self-run - they rely on the mutual commitment and responsibility of all members to make the forum work. The Process of Focus Forum is a guidebook for building and maintaining an effective forum. It outlines a simple yet powerful method that can be followed by any forum, including: members' roles and responsibilities; ground rules for building mutual respect, commitment, trust and confidentiality; the structure and format of forum meetings; areas to avoid in order to prevent potential problems; and ways to leverage your forum experience to maximize your personal and professional success.

"“Tried and Tweaked: Activities to re-energize peer-learning sessions” is a collection of activities designed and conducted by undergraduate students at the University of Minnesota to use in their role as facilitators leading study sessions in the University’s Peer-Assisted Learning (PAL) Program. The activities were developed and tested during their weekly sessions and focus on two particular guiding principles of the PAL program (there are eight): modeling productive learning behaviors, and engaging students with each other. Each activity offers suggestions for preparation, supplies needed, appropriate courses, and the type of student grouping used in the activity. The spirit in which these session activities are designed is one of creating an informal, social, and welcoming environment. This is a companion volume to the Guide for Peer Learning Facilitators, which details all eight principles"--Abstract, University of Minnesota Libraries Digital Conservancy.
