Hey there! I'm Laurel.

I've been teaching around the world since 2015, and in 2020 I completed my Master's in Eduction with a Focus on Teaching Multilingual Learners. I'm passionate about student success!

Master's Thesis: Peer Relationships in the Online Classroom

This action research project was undertaken to fulfil the requirements of Moreland University's Master's in Education programme. The resulting thesis examined the effect of peer relationships on learning for English language learners (ELLs) in the online setting and sought to answer the following two research questions:

  1. How do peer relationships affect learning for K-12 ELL students in an online setting?

  2. What instructional strategies are effective for fostering peer relationships for K-12 ELL students in an online setting?
