The 4R-SUCCESS program: promoting childrens social and scholastic skills in dyadic classroom activities Academic Article uri icon


  • Research on peer mediated learning shows that students learn through interactions with classmates, but little is known about the skills that children need to be productive learning partners, and educators lack programs for teaching children how to collaborate effectively with classmates. Described in this article is a program of research that was undertaken to address these needs by: (1) empirically creating a collaborative skills curriculum for grade school children, and (2) developing, refining, and implementing a class-wide program for improving grade school children's social and scholastic skills for collaborative learning activities (i.e., the 4R-SUCCESS program). 2013 Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden.
