This issue of NASET’s Practical Teacher, written by Mariel O. Danga, investigates the effectiveness of peer tutoring during instructional time and to determine if peer tutoring can aid in the achievement of students with learning disabilities.  An overview of the study is provided including the Models of Peer-Assisted Strategies: (1) ClassWide Peer Tutoring (CWPT), (2) Peer assisted learning strategies (PALS), and (3) Cross-Age Tutoring. Finally, implications of these peer assisted strategies and the role of the educators in ensuring the learning of their students will be addressed.
