Evaulation of the Demonstration Phase of the Teen Tutorial Program: A Model of Interrelationship of Seventh Graders, Kindergarten Pupils and Parents to Meet the Developmental Needs of Disadvantaged Children.
O'Bryan, Sharleen; And Others
This document describes and evaluates a teen tutorial program conducted in Grove City, Ohio. Forty seventh grade pupils, two kindergarten classes, and parents of both groups were subjects of this project to create and demonstrate a strategy to help young disadvantaged teenagers develop an understanding of personal and family relationships before they themselves became adults or parents. In the future they might then be better equipped to provide an environment for their children that would preclude a continuation of the deficit that usually accompanies early childhhod in lower income groups. The project proposed to (1) provide the seventh graders with a course in human relations and family living, (2) offer the teenagers a chance to tutor kindergarten children, and (3) educate the parents of the children involved. The program report has nine appendixes which contain (1) evaluation procedures, (2) comments by administrators, (3) comments about team teaching, (4) comments on change in teen tutors, (5) comments on change in kindergartners, (6) comments by observers, (7) general end of year comments, (8) outline of education program for parents, and (9) evaluation form for selection of teen tutors.
