Developing a Peer Tutoring Program: A Self-Instructional Module.
Williams, Richard W.
This two-part module was prepared to assist instructors in designing and implementing a peer tutoring program. After introductory material and the presentation of a rationale for peer tutoring, Part I begins by stating learning objectives and providing a pretest. It then presents an overview of peer tutoring, outlining a systematic tutoring program. This section continues with a description of five steps in an implementation procedure, including the selection and recruitment of tutors, the identification of instructional resources, the determination of who will be served, and the evaluation and modification of the tutoring program. A sample evaluation questionnaire is included. Part II, a peer tutoring manual, begins with an introduction to the concept of peer tutoring and nine learning objectives. After the tutors' pretest, the manual suggests ten learning activities for the tutor which focus on subject matter review, personal attitude assessment, investigation of the tutor's role, hypothetical tutoring situations, designing learning activities for tutees, identifying additional resources, record keeping, and a personal growth seminar. The manual concludes with a pretest. Appendices include answer keys, papers on the role of a tutor and on the community college student, a description of a procedure for a tutoring assignment, discussions and exercises related to tutorial problems and potential solutions, suggestions for record keeping, and an essay on writing tutorial objectives.
