Tutorial Community Report. Progress Report, August 1971-July 1972.
COP Bulletin, n2
The Tutorial Community Project (TCP) is a seven-year effort (1968-1975) designed to establish a model elementary school in the Los Angeles City School System. This document reports the project's accomplishments at Wilshire Crest and Dublin Avenue schools during the first year of the TCP. The main thrust of TCP is to develop a model, self-renewing, learning community through the creative use of human resources for disadvantaged schools. The focal point of this document is the interrelationship of the school and the community in a tutorial program involving parents and other students in cross age tutoring. Outcomes of the project include shared planning and decision making, increasing involvement of the PTA and student council, and other methods of student involvement and leadership development. Academic achievement increased through the individualized instruction program. A dissemination strategy was developed, based on the TCP helping-relationship model, to focus support on innovative, model schools that, in turn, have the obligation to adopt sister schools and help them develop similar programs.
