The Benefits of Being High School Corrective Reading Peer Instructors

Short, C.; Marchand-Martella, N.; Martella, R.; Ebey, T.
Abstract:
This article examines a study which tested the effects of peer instruction of the direct instruction program, Corrective Reading, on the students providing the instruction. Student instructors were selected from 11th and 12th grade honor English classes. Results from the Gates MacGinitie Reading Tests showed the peer instructors who performed below grade level on pretest examination improved their reading skills. They also demonstrated a three grade increase in vocabulary. Additionally the peer instructors were judged to have taught the program correctly, providing reliable data for the study.
