“For low-achieving students in particular…the opportunity to practice [academic strategies] through teaching them to others, may also promote increased engagement and learning. Students more readily acquire academic content when they must explain it to others and are responsible for ensuring another’s learning” (Carter & Kennedy, 2006, p. 287).
