Planning and Implementing a Peer Tutoring Approach to Individualized Instruction to Improve Reading Achievement.
Patterson, R. T., Jr.
The purpose of this practicum was to implement and evaluate a peer tutoring program designed to raise the reading level of a selected group of low-achieving students at Harry Stone Middle School, an all-black, sixth- and seventh-grade school in the Dallas, Texas, Independent School District. Objectives were twofold: to raise the grade-equivalent scores of at least 60% of both tutee and tutor experimental groups, within eight months, and to establish the existence of significant gains in the experimental group, in contrast with a control group. Although comparisons of pre- and posttest scores revealed that the program was not successful according to established criteria, as a result of the project, the tutoring program in the Dallas Independent School District is being revised to meet demonstrated needs.
