Peer and Cross-Age Tutoring and Related Topics: An Annotated Bibliography. Theoretical Paper No. 53.
This annotated bibliography is an effort to provide educators and researchers with a comprehensive listing of current resources, information, and research concerning peer and cross age academic tutoring by students, together with a selection of references on related topics of cross age interactions, tutoring in general, and the use of paraprofessionals in educational and therapeutic situations. The references cited were selected from a search of educational and psychological literature from 1960 to 1973 and are categorized according to the nature of the activities discussed and the nature of the individuals involved. Included are descriptions of both informal tutoring programs in individual classrooms around the country and organized, systematic programs developed and formally evaluated by educators. The bibliography contains a number of controlled experiments and doctoral theses investigating the effectiveness of tutoring by children and adults and the significance of factors such as race, age, and sex differences in tutoring combinations. Also listed are several tutoring "packages" published commercially and available for purchase by school systems. A number of items cited in this bibliography are unpublished materials listed in the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC). The ERIC file numbers for these documents are included in the citations. Also cited are doctoral dissertations which are available through University Microfilms along with their listings in "Dissertation Abstracts International." (Author/BD)
