Training Tutors for Writing Conferences.
Reigstad, Thomas J.; McAndrew, Donald A.
Intended for composition teachers who see "editor/writer" conferences as the ideal teaching strategy, this booklet offers a procedure for training tutors--staff or students--to respond skillfully to a writer's work in a one-to-one context. The first half of the booklet discusses theory and research regarding the tutorial process and some principles underlying the subsequent tutorial model. The second half examines the writing and tutoring processes, and presents a schedule for training tutors. (HTH)
