Cross-Age and Peer Tutoring. ERIC Digest.
Thomas, Robert L.
Answering a variety of questions about cross-age and peer tutoring, this digest provides information on how tutoring programs are organized, how to start programs, why tutoring programs are effective, and what the critical ingredients of peer programs are. The digest briefly discusses two examples of effective programs recognized by the National Diffusion Network (1992), as well as a program focusing on the language arts, particularly reading and oral comprehension, and using language-based games and activities.
