Learning by Creating Math Tutoring Videos (LCMTV)

Peer tutoring has a potential “double-dividend”: the tutors themselves may be learning from the process. I will pilot a new intervention, Learning by Creating Math Tutoring Videos (LCMTV), which aims to help middle and high school students learn math by creating tutoring videos. I will recruit 80 teachers from middle and high schools in the midwestern United States that teach at least two sections of the same math class, for a total of 160 classrooms. One classroom for each teacher will be randomly assigned to do “business as usual” homework problems, and the other will receive a modified version of one problem per week, asking the student to create a tutoring video explaining the math problem to a hypothetical student. Students’ math test scores and math grades will be the primary outcomes, and self-reported math confidence will be a secondary outcome.
