Sowell, Virginia; And Others
The literature on peer tutoring is reviewed, and guidelines are offered for developing a peer tutoring program for handicapped students. Research on peer tutoring is examined in terms of rationale, special education benefits, affective change, and academic gains. Aspects of program development considered include administrative arrangements, organization of programs, selection of tutors, matching tutor and tutee, training of tutors, actual tutoring sessions, and evaluation of peer tutoring programs. Peer tutoring is seen to be a valuable technique to help meet special educational needs. Appended are a list of activities appropriate for peer tutors, sample forms to be used in the peer tutoring program, and forms for program evaluation. (DB)
