Peer-mediated academic interventions (PMAIs) have a robust evidence base that support their use in classrooms to improve a variety of academic behaviors. In this chapter, we define PMAIs, discuss strengths and challenges of using these interventions in classrooms with diverse groups of learners, and provide a detailed review of the literature to support each of four highlighted PMAIs: peer tutoring, Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies, cooperative learning, and peer-mediated writing interventions. This chapter also introduces the practical chapters in this section, which cover each of the four highlighted PMAIs.
