Structured Tutoring.
Harrison, Grant Von
Although the structured tutoring model was designed to cope with the unique learning characteristics of low achieving primary grade children who are considered high risks in terms of failure, structured tutoring can be used to teach most objectives not readily attained by students generally, at any grade level. The best tutors for primary grade children are older elementary school students. These students should be closely supervised by an adult with experience in devising diagnostic criterion-referenced pretests, preparing and maintaining record sheets and instructional materials, and selecting and training student tutors. The adult should be someone other than a classroom teacher. As most interested groups do not have the resources or time to meet the stipulations advocated by the author, he has written a series of tutor guides and manuals and developed several complete tutorial systems. The guides and manuals can be used with tutoring programs at almost any level or in any subject area. The complete tutorial systems are designed for programs in which fifth and sixth graders are teaching first and second graders reading or arithmetic. (RT)
