              I like your take on how pairing and older and younger student could be beneficial because it could help for the older student to be the teacher. This also made me think of pairing by skill level. Any ... more

            I think pairing students together is a great idea. I know I have learned a lot that I didn't understand better being paired with another student who was able to explain things in terms that were... more

              I agree with you, it is effective, especially effective for students who have ASD. I would say that students learn from both the ways you mentioned. That is, the other student is able to act as an... more
