A Comparison of Tutored Students with Nontutored Students in Reading Achievement.
Wuycheck, Eileen Champ
This investigation studied the effects upon reading achievement through tutorial participation. Fifth grade inner-city students tutored third graders. One fifth grader tutored the same three third graders daily on a one-to-one basis. One teacher in each school supervised high school coordinators and the tutoring teams. Third grade teacher conferred regularly with the supervising teacher about reading games to be used in skill development. It was concluded from the evidence that tutoring was effective in promoting reading achievement for tutors, but that achievement of tutees was not significantly different from that of third graders in a regular class setting. Improvements in attitudes of both groups toward school and their relationships with school personnel were especially encouraging. The study concludes by recommending that similar programs be implemented for disadvantaged fifth graders during the regular school year. (Author/WR)
