Comprehensive Explanation and Analysis of Project Pyramid.
Saint Peter's Coll., Jersey City, NJ. Dept. of Education.
The 1974 Distinguished Achievement Awards Entry from St. Peter's College, Jersey City, New Jersey is Project Pyramid, a 3-year tutorial, field experience program which provides two different groups of college, high school, and elementary school students with the opportunity to work together in a teaching-learning situation. Twenty St. Peter's College students are each assigned to tutor two high school students. Each high school student is then assigned to tutor two elementary school students under the supervision of the college student supervisor. The college students attend a seminar in which they analyze and discuss problems arising from the tutoring experience. A learning center, containing elementary and secondary level materials, is available to all participants. There is a trained senior education major at the center to assist college students in selecting material for themselves and their high school tutors. Preliminary test data show an increase of 4 months in reading and 2 months in mathematics for elementary school students and an increase of 9 months in reading and 4 months in mathematics for high school students. (Four tables of data along with a one-page budget are included.) (BRB)
