Abstract

: This paper reports on an ongoing study about a cohort-based practicum course for classroom where virtual peer collaboration supports their instruction. The study organically grew out of a one-on-one literacy tutoring program set up to meet the needs of struggling ELL readers in grades 2-4. It examines what benefits, if any, the graduate students perceived in this F2F tutoring program as part of their practicum experience, when using an asynchronous blog to share experiences and strive towards following best practices in literacy and ELL pedagogy.
