PROCEEDINGS OF THE TUTOR ORIENTATION SYMPOSIUM, GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY, OCTOBER 15, 16, AND 17, 1964 (TITLE SUPPLIED).
HOSTETLER, JAMES S.; AND OTHERS
THE PLAN FOR THE SYMPOSIUM WAS DEVELOPED AFTER DISCUSSIONS TO DETERMINE AREAS OF INFORMATION THAT WOULD AID ALL TUTORS, TO DETERMINE WHETHER LARGE SCALE TRAINING WAS FEASIBLE OR ADVISABLE, AND TO DETERMINE HOW THE SYMPOSIUM COULD SERVE AS A PILOT FOR FUTURE TRAINING AND ORIENTATION BY THE OFFICE OF TUTORING SERVICES. THE SYMPOSIUM WAS DEVOTED TO TUTORING AND INFORMATION REGARDING SCHOOLS, CHARACTERISTICS OF THE UNDERPRIVILEGED, AND RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO. THE PROGRAM CONSISTED OF THE FOLLOWING SPEECHES--"THE ROLE OF TEACHERS AND COMMUNITY WORKERS IN DEPRESSED AREAS" BY D. CARL MARBURGER, "EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF URBAN SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY AGENCIES" BY DR. DANIEL SCHREIBER, WHO DISCUSSED PROBLEMS OF DROPOUTS, RESPONSIBILITIES OF AND CHALLENGES TO EDUCATION IN THE CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY, EXAMPLES OF SUCCESSFUL PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS, EFFORTS TO IMPROVE READING ACHIEVEMENT, STAFFING OF INNER CITY SCHOOLS, AND PLACEMENT AND PREDICTIVE TESTING, AND "TUTORING THE DISADVANTAGED CHILD" BY DR. FRANK RIESSMAN, WHO CONSIDERED THE ROLE OF THE TUTOR, THE SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE HE MUST HAVE OF THE DISADVANTAGED CHILD'S ENVIRONMENT AND LEARNING STYLE, AND ILLUSTRATIONS OF EFFECTIVE TEACHING STYLES AND TECHNIQUES. TOPICS FOR A PANEL DISCUSSION ON THE FOUR DIMENSIONS OF TUTORING WERE--"UNDERSTANDING THE SCHOOL FRAMEWORK" BY DR. IRENE HYPPS, "PERSPECTIVES ON THE TUTOR IN THE TUTORING RELATIONSHIP" BY DR. H.A. MEYERSBURG, "WHAT IS SUCCESS" BY DR. DAVID IWAMOTO, AND "BRINGING EXCITEMENT TO THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE" BY DR. ARTHUR PEARL.
