Peer2Peer

Peer2Peer kicks off for 2014

It was with no small amount of trepidation that fourteen Year 7 students arrived at the library for the first session of Peer2Peer for 2014, a peer-tutoring literacy program where Year 10 student volunteers work with selected Year 7 students. Even the newly-trained Year 10 tutors didn’t know quite what to expect.

But 50 minutes, a few minties, and lots of talking, there was no sign of nerves or shyness anywhere.

This orientation session allowed our students to get to know peers from other classes and another grade as well as Mrs Clarke, Ms Stuart and myself in a different light. We now know a few of each other’s favourite movies, likes and dislikes (peas were an unpopular vegetable, Scary Movie is something I apparently must see). It was great to see the students so friendly and I congratulate the Year 10’s for being such positive role models and the Year 7s for doing so well in what can be quite an overwhelming situation.

Having built more of a rapport among the students, we will now get down to the business of reading, writing and getting organised. Student discussion will continue, however, will be focussed around a range of fiction and non-fiction texts. Working in pairs, students will participate in buddy-reading, explore different subjects and stories and will share ideas, opinions and knowledge.

Congratulations again to all students involved. Last year’s participants set a high standard and this first session has been a very promising start to what I am sure will be a great program. I look forward to seeing everyone in the library again soon.
