Regular readers of this blog know I’m a big proponent of students teaching other students.
I’ve published several posts on the topic, but am hoping readers will point me in the direction of others.
Here is a beginning list of The Best Posts On Helping Students Teach Their Classmates (it’s just a beginning):
Important Study: “Expecting to teach enhances learning, recall”
How to Use the Reciprocal Learning Strategy is from Cult of Pedagogy.

Doug Lemov has a Part Two guest post on peer tutoring.
The Art Of Peer Teaching is from 3 Star Learning Experience.
Should Students Explain Their Thinking? Not Always, Research Says is from Ed Week. It’s a helpful study, though I think it uses a “straw man.” It basically says that student self-explanation is effective as long as they’re giving a correct one. It’s difficult for me to believe that many teachers don’t use guidance to ensure that this is the case. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen researchers use straw men to prove their point.
Additional suggestions are always welcome.
