Students as Teachers

The purpose of this blog is to share interesting ideas I have found in recent American professional publications dealing with the teaching of English at all levels, elementary, secondary and college.

Topic: Students as Teachers (College)

Title: “Crossing the Student/Teacher Divide at the Community College: The Student Tutor Education Program (STEP).” James V. Werner. Teaching English in the Two-Year College (May 2008), 363-371. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English.

Summary: Students at the community college who desire to explore the profession of teaching are trained to be tutors within classes and in writing centers, but also plan and teach units on topics like plagiarism.

Comment. Great idea. RayS.
