Volunteer Reading Tutoring Program. Summary Report.
Schoeller, Arthur W.
The Volunteer Reading Tutoring Program in center city Milwaukee during the 1967-1968 school year was a mutual project of the School of Education Reading Clinic and the Center for Community Leadership of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The program was organized by two urban specialists and a reading consultant to meet the expressed reading needs of the center city community. Professional reading assistants worked with and trained the volunteer reading tutors. Tutoring centers were established in 12 churches throughout the community for retarded readers in grades 3 through 5. Positive evidence provided by informal observations and formal survey showed that the benefits of the Volunteer Reading Tutoring Program should continue to be available to center city residents. Specific recommendations for the future are listed. Reports from the 12 centers and appendixes are included. (WB)
