Teaching and Learning

Activating Students as Learning Resources for One Another.


Engaging students in assessing the work of their peers is not just a labour-saving device for the teacher. Implemented properly, it can substantially increase student achievement, both for those who get help from their peers, and peers who provide the help.

This distinct purpose that people express for cooperation and collaborative learning, the first is that because adults are required to work together in their jobs and communities. So the school should prepare young people to work in this way. Secondly, students work together can produce greater learning then students work individually. Formative assessments can help to increase the learning what that teacher wants them to learn.

TECHNIQUES - Peer Feedback

Peers helping each other involves settings in cooperatively in pair or group. When students are involving each other feedback, there are at least take less time than getting students into groups. For feedback five to ten minutes may be needed. When work in peers one student directly addressing the other or students either are speaking to or being spoken directly to the level of engagement is generally higher.  

STRATEGY used in P1 and P3 pupils in the Tamil Language classes 

  • Feedback techniques was attempted. 

  • Students able to assess each other formatively assessing each other’s work to judge it but improve it. The principles of effective FA to help student act as learning resources for one another for P1 and P3 pupils in the Tamil Language classes.
