Peer-Mediated Learning Strategies Observation Form

tow-friendship-101This week’s FREE Tool is a quick and simple observation form from Friendship 101, a step-by-step guidebook for teaching social competency. The form provides a straightforward way to collect data on Peer-Mediated Learning Strategies (PMLS), evidence-based practices that teach social skills to students with disabilities through the involvement of a typically developing peer. The practice provides students with disabilities a positive role model, an opportunity for social interaction, and increased independence. But, like any teaching strategy, it requires monitoring and evaluation to ensure its effectiveness. If you are implementing PMLS in your classroom, this form will allow you to easily evaluate interactions between the focal student and his or her peer mediator so you can make adjustments to this valuable strategy as necessary.
