Cross-Age Tutoring.
Hagen, John W.; Moeller, Tamerra
A cross-age tutoring program conducted in an elementary school is described. Part I of the report concerns reasons for instituting such a program. Benefits are predicted for (1) the tutor, in improving his/her attitudes toward learning, (2) for the tutee, by promoting a positive relationship with an older child, (3) for the teachers, in providing needed assistance, and (4) for the researcher, in providing unusual opportunities for applied studies. Part II discusses the actual operation of the program. Fifth and sixth graders tutored 1-3 graders, aided by teachers and group leaders. Major problems were the need for additional resources for the tutor, and the need for increased teacher participation. Issues of interest to the teachers involved are discussed. Tutor training is also considered, with emphasis on the content of on-going seminars. Part III concerns issues of program evaluation and provides suggestions for research that have arisen from program operation. (DP)
