Helping Students "STA" in College.
Dahlke, Anita B.; Schnier, Ronald R.
The Student Teaching Assistant (STA) Program was initiated in 1972 by the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Reading-Study Center to provide highly qualified peer tutors for interested campuses within the University's system. STA training workshops are held each summer for approximately twenty academically-able students from participating campuses. These students return to their respective campuses, which hire them and provide tutoring space, the necessary materials, and an advisor. Workshop training in study techniques incorporates the principles of learning and memory with small group instruction and individual practice sessions. Much of the training in establishing a helping relationship is presented through a microcounseling training model. STAs are being utilized in a variety of settings throughout the University of Wisconsin system. (Author/JM)
