Sim Phek Lin, Sandra (2012) Collaboration in a peer response group / Sandra Sim Phek Lin. [Research Reports]


Collaboration amongst students helps to promote team co-operation through the sharing of ideas amongst students within the group. Peers can provide scaffolds to assist their group members to improve their writing. This is because effective learning entails learners' active role throughout the learning process rather than depending on the traditional teacher evaluation of the final products (Alesandrini & Larson, 2002). As such, peer response session provides students the opportunity to take leadership of their own decisions through meaningful dialogue and feedback. According to Shor and Freire (1987), "[voice] is a means to transform social relations in the classroom and to raise awareness about relations in the society at large" (p. 11).
