What Can I Do? An Alternative to Confrontation: The Bakersfield College Tutorial Project.
Hernandez, John Paul
The Bakersfield College student tutorial project is described and evaluated. Starting in 1965, college students tutored disadvantaged (minority group) elementary and junior high school students after school. Students were tutored in English, reading, math, the Constitution, and other areas. The program included field trips. An evaluation of the 1968-69 phase of the tutorial project was drawn from questionnaires completed by the 39 tutors and from the tutors' journals. It was concluded that the tutorial project was extremely valuable for both tutors and tutees. The program could be strengthened by recruiting more minority group tutors and by pre-tutorial orientation. The program could be expanded to include other community services (juvenile hall, mental hospitals, etc.). [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (MS)
