Students build elements of the human body—muscles and tendons—with clay on a plastic model of the hand to learn basic components and biomechanical principles. The peer teacher then organizes and presents this lesson to younger students. The educator provides framework, encouragement, and feedback to facilitate the student teacher’s ability to carry out the challenge.
Peer teaching has a long history in both formal and informal education, with evidence-based outcomes that indicate its effectiveness in improving grades and grasp of knowledge, among other variables.
