Peers As Partners In Learning

What is Peers as Partners in Learning?

The Peers as Partners in Learning (PPL) program begins with students being approved to enroll in the Peers as Partners in Learning course (found on CPALMS #1400340).  This elective course is designed to provide peer supports for students with disabilities.  Students with and without disabilities who are partners in the PPL course comprise the PPL program at their specific school.

The Peers as Partners in Learning program provides reciprocal

  • academic,
  • social, and
  • interpersonal

benefits to students with and without disabilities, in an inclusive setting. Inclusion means that students with disabilities receive services and supports in general education classrooms and settings with their same age peers without disabilities.

FIN has developed  the Peers as Partners in Learning Curriculum and Planning Guide to help schools, administrators and teacher teams launch a PPL program at their schools.
