The goal of the Peer to Peer Online Course is to provide access to a quality, engaging, and age-appropriate content for Peer to Peer high school courses. This curriculum includes content, lesson plans, assignments, and grading criteria in alignment with Michigan’s Department of Education Pupil Accounting Manual requirements.
This revised curriculum is designed as an online/hybrid course where Peer to Peer students can access all of the content on a weekly basis through the "Moodle" platform.
The first semester of the first year covers the basics of ASD to include foundational information, rationale for Peer to Peer Mediation, considerations based on social and communication differences, as well behavioral factors. Content is arranged so that students revisit each major content area multiple times throughout the course. The second semester of year one will focus on content to assist Peer to Peer support students in learning about other disabilities that may affect other students who will also benefit from peer support.
