Tutor's Handbook--Highline Indian Tutoring Program.
The handbook for tutors in the Highline Indian Tutoring Program (Seattle, Washington) provides guidelines for high school and college student tutors, to help them develop a personal, helping relationship with, and provide academic assistance in math and reading to, Native American elementary students. The introduction gives general guidelines for tutoring and makes suggestions about how to build on students' cultural heritage. The program makes use of student tutors who receive special training. Subsequent sections outline tutor responsibilities, the student--tutor relationship, progress charts and reward systems (with sample awards and charts), and 60 ways to praise. Forms include a sample lesson plan and lesson plan checklist, an instructional needs survey (to be completed during the initial tutor--teacher conference), an end-of-quarter report form, a sample time sheet, a letter to parents, and a parent bulletin. Move-ahead games for tutoring are discussed. A section on reading covers reading, sight vocabulary, and word analysis skills; comprehension, the Systematic Approach to Reading Improvement (SARI) system; reading rules of thumb; comprehension questions; and reading activities and games. The math section discusses computation skills; math questioning strategies; student learning objectives; and math activities, games, and ideas. (MH)
