Spanish and English Language Development
Peer teaching is a great way to get language learners to practice their target language. Even though the content area for my action research was mathematics, students were also able to practice listening and speaking skills while collaborating. These are part of the Common Core Spanish Language Arts Standards. Whether you work in a single language of instruction school or a bilingual school or dual immersion school, there are language development standards that students grow in when you implement peer teaching in any content area. Here is more information on both the English Language Development Standards and Spanish Language Development Standards.
