The Protégé Effect: Learning by Teaching in College Reading

Learning by teaching is not a new concept and is often considered one of the most effective ways to learn. This session includes a discussion on the idea of providing college reading students with the opportunity to become “teachers” in order to increase learning and overall academic success.

First, this session will provide a brief presentation that includes background information, theoretical framework and previous research that highlights the effectiveness of learning by teaching. Next, participants will get a glimpse into a College Reading class that requires students to teach content they are learning in their college courses to their peers – both in small and whole class settings. Sample teaching presentations and student reflections will be shared and discussed. Finally, time will be allotted for open discussion focusing on future ideas and feedback on utilizing a learning by teaching framework in a developmental reading course.
