Peer Tutoring - Introduction and Historical Perspective.
Hoffman, Charles
The historical development and contemporary research analyses of peer tutoring with normal and handicapped children are reviewed. The evolution from the monitorial system of the mid nineteenth century to programed tutoring programs with disadvantaged students in the 1960's is traced. Benefits for teachers, tutees, and tutors are described. Research is explained to identify those types of children who benefit from tutorial approaches. Among four requirements cited for successful implementation are winning administrators' solid commitment to the program, and encouraging flexible adaptations of the model to meet local needs. (CL)
