I am interested in creating a curriculum that helps cultivate students abilities to teach one another. Specifically good one-on-one instruction includes elements like:
Examples, Pictures, Humor, Socratic Questioning, Challenges appropriate to the students abilities. One could even evaluate an instructor (and a potentially a student-instructor) on their ability incorporate these elements into their teaching.
We might ask students to teach one another certain skills like how to add fractions with different denominators and most teachers have a sense of who would be good at teaching and who might be a tad patronizing or dismissive but I haven't ever seen a curriculum which directly addresses and develops instruction abilities in students.
1) Does such a curriculum already exist?
2) What research is out there on having students teach one another in one-on-one contexts?
3) How does this community feel about students teaching one another directly?
