Final Report of the Evaluation of the 1969-1970 Homework-Helper Program: Programs and Patterns for Disadvantaged High School Students. ESEA Title I.
Joiner, Lee M.
The Homework Help Program, funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act, has the following objectives: (1) to encourage high school and college students from low income areas to remain in school through economic assistance; (2) to present a new opportunity for these students to achieve success; (3) to motivate these high school and college students toward improved academic achievement; (4) to expose these students to a tutorial experience while they are still young enough to choose teaching as a career; (5) to provide individual assistance to secondary school pupils in need of help with basic education; (6) to provide models for educationally deprived children, thereby increasing their aspirations for school success; and, (7) to promote integration through tutor-pupil assignments and activities. Each of the ten high school centers has a staff consisting of approximately 12 tutors, an auxiliary paraprofessional, a secretary, and the "master teacher," who is the direct supervisor of the entire staff. Tutorial classes are held Monday through Thursday, from three to five p.m. Students attend on a Monday-Wednesday, or Tuesday-Thursday schedule. Tutors are generally students at the school being serviced or recent graduates. (Author/JM)
