Mainstreaming Special Education Using a Peer Tutoring System and a Minimum Objective Curriculum for Nine Eighth Grade Students.
Collins, Joseph F.; Calevro, Michael J.
A peer tutoring system was used to improve the math skills of nine eighth grade students in a mainstreaming program. Ss (whose math skill deficits ranged from 3.8 to 6.6 years) met daily with peer tutors for one half hour of instruction from the Sullivan Associates Programmed Math series. Achievement rates after 3 months ranged from 4.8 months per month of tutoring to 14.6 months per month of tutoring. (LS)
