Learning through Peer Interaction

OELP has tried to build on the idea of “peer learning” through the Pathan Saathi or Reading Buddies Programme. Children who are proficient readers are paired with beginning readers to create mutually beneficial bonds which are built on shared reading.Usually one Didi and Bhaiya is grouped with four of five Kallis. Our experience has shown that children take on their roles very seriously and the struggling readers in each group begin to get involved with books and reading in a variety of meaningful ways.
