Peer mediated intervention: students working together to improve reading
Early reading development plays an important part in students’ success throughout their learning. Teachers are always expanding their knowledge on how to implement reading strategies and support students with reading difficulties. The purpose of this project was to find a successful way to implement a peer mediated reading program. This project is a workshop that contains ideas gathered through action research with trial and error practices happening in the classroom. Peer reading activities were implemented daily through continuous professional development, collaborating opportunities with the resource teacher also took place as well as ongoing reflections on what demonstrated a positive response and what did not.
