Students Teaching Students

The NYC AIM educational model, in addition to apprenticeships, includes students teaching students. There is nothing new to this approach, it can be found throughout the annals of education in forms including tutoring, counseling and coaching. By putting students in charge of the teaching of their fellow classmates it opens up new levels of learning both for the students being taught as well as the students doing the teaching. For those being taught there is a receptivity to the intake of information and for the student teacher it’s like the saying “there’s no better way to learn than to teach.”
