Cross-Age Tutoring in the Elementary School in Northwestern Ohio.
Day, Janet D.
A study described the amount of usage and structure of cross-age reading tutoring programs. A survey was sent to 68 schools in northwest Ohio to determine percentage and ranges of usage. Results indicated that less than 22% of the 42 elementary schools that responded to the survey used a cross-age tutoring program. Of the programs in place, less than 25% gave formal instruction to their tutors on a regular basis. Most of the schools gave some type of instruction to the tutor. The majority of the tutors were third to sixth graders. The majority of the tutees were first and second graders. Most of the schools surveyed requested further information on cross-age tutoring. Findings suggest that more information on cross-age tutoring needs to be given to elementary school teachers to provide individualized instruction for underachieving readers. (One table of data is included; six figures of data and the survey instrument are attached.) (RS)
