Learning and Growing through Tutoring. A Case Study of Youth Tutoring Youth.
A case study, in-depth description, and analysis of a youth tutoring youth program are presented in this document. The approach used in preparing the study--mainly utilizing participant observation, site visits, and structured interviews--are detailed in a separate chapter. This is followed by a chapter of background information in which the community and its schools are described, along with the process by which tutors and tutees were selected and how the program was initiated. A subsequent chapter introduces the ongoing program from the point of view of a visitor. The role of the supervising teacher, the relationship with tutors, and relationship with tutees and their teachers are also examined. The lengthiest section of the report deals with the tutors and tutees themselves, focusing on them as they relate to each other in actual situations, through the use of field notes and extensive interviews. Remaining sections describe what happened to the program when its supervisor left and was replaced by a new teacher. The program described here is said to represent a good choice for a case study because it is so average. (Author/AM)
