One aspect of peer relationships is the instructional avenues for promoting more peer interactions, such as cooperative learning, pair learning, and other collaborative learning opportunities that are easily imbedded into a good lesson design. Students live in an interdependent world and in order to be successful in relating to people, students should be comfortable both giving and receiving help. Teachers can consciously plan for these reciprocal interactions in the classroom.
