Peer Tutor Classes

imagesIn this class you become one of the teachers. We will train you and then you will work directly with a student. Not only will you receive a grade partially based on your regular attendance, but you will also be required to complete a few homework assignments each term. These assignments are meant to increase your knowledge and understanding on a variety of disabilities and what it might be like to live with a disability.

In research, peer tutoring is important for two reasons. One, it integrates the  special education students. This happens when you spend time with them in class and outside of class. They become a part of Bonneville High School. Secondly, this experience hopefully makes you more aware and comfortable around people with disabilities. In the workplace and socially, I hope you encounter people with disabilities. Additionally, after completing this class, I hope you will not shy away from them but welcome them into your life!
