The Institute for Tutorial Development, April 1967-1968. Final Report.
Isgar, Tom; Isgar, Susan
Reported is a summer training institute for the directors and staffs of tutorial projects. The 30 interns were middle class college students who came to Detroit for a leadership training program combining field work, seminars, residence in disadvantaged communities, and intense personal and group interaction experiences. The goal was to develop strong tutors capable of social involvement as well as personal growth and understanding. The bulk of the report consists primarily of excerpts from journals kept by the interns during the course of the institute. Also included is an appendix containing relevant data on the project. An addendum consists of the project proposal, a paper on the process of individual growth within a learning theory context, some notes on the training institute, and an interim report prepared for the Office of Economic Opportunity, the funding agency.
