TRAINING STUDENTS TO TUTOR.
HARRISON, GRANT V.; MELARAGNO, RALPH J.
RESEARCH HAS BEEN PROGRESSING IN SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA, ON A PROGRAM WHICH TRAINS 5TH AND 6TH GRADE STUDENTS TO TUTOR 1ST GRADE MEXICAN AMERICANS. THROUGH USE OF A BOOKLET CONTAINING PICTORIAL PRESENTATIONS, STUDENTS MUST RESPOND TO A TAPE RECORDING IDENTIFYING THE PICTURE AND THE SPOKEN TERM. THE EXPERIMENT WAS CONDUCTED IN THESE THREE SEPARATE SCHOOLS AND A PATTERN OF TRAINING WAS IDENTIFIED. THE FACT WAS ESTABLISHED THAT ALMOST ALL UPPER GRADE CHILDREN CAN BE TRAINED TO BE TUTORS. THE SHORTCOMINGS OF THE PROGRAM WERE--(1) NO EFFECTIVE EVALUATION INSTRUMENT WAS DEVELOPED TO TEST THE MASTERY OF SKILLS BY THE TUTORS, AND (2) THERE WAS A QUESTION OF WHETHER THE CHILD BEING TUTORED REALLY LEARNS SINCE TUTOR-LEARNER INTERACTION IS SO VITAL TO LEARNING GAINS. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE 1968 AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION ANNUAL MEETING, CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, FEBRUARY 1968. (WN)
