The Effects of Utilizing Teen Tutors in a Fourth and Fifth Grade Individualized Reading Program.
Klann, Harriet; And Others
Fifteen high school students served as volunteer tutors in an individualized reading program for 14 fourth and fifth grade pupils unable to succeed at grade level in reading skills. Assignments were based on the Ginn 100 reading series and Ss were evaluated on word recognition (taught with flashcards) and comprehension. Each student improved in word recognition for each text demonstrating intrasubject as well as intersubject replication of the effects of teen tutoring. In addition, concurrent with introduction of points exchanged for library books of their choice, pupil performances improved for daily comprehension of reading assignments. From September to May, most students advanced 2-3 years in reading with the least advancement 1.7 years and the greatest 3.7 years. (Author/LS)
