Cross-Age Tutoring Handbook.
Designed for teachers and tutors, the handbook discusses setting up a cross-age tutoring program. Topics include tutor responsibilities; the role of resource teachers; tutor contracts; specific relationship-building and tutoring techniques; ideas for tutoring in handwriting; and techniques for tutoring in reading, spelling, and arithmetic. The section describing reasons why children have trouble learning is accompanied by eight illustrated pages showing typical student problem situations. A chart for recording interactions between younger and older people is followed by a faculty list, school map, and sample tutor evaluation forms. (LH)
