Peer Tutoring in the Regular Classroom: A Guide for School Psychologists.
Written to accompany a videotape, the handbook is presented as a guide for school psychologists on peer tutoring in the regular classroom. A general overview of the peer tutoring process (including selecting and pairing students, supervising the process, and scheduling and feedback) is presented, followed by basic steps in developing a tutoring program and preparing tutors. Training goals are listed in terms of the development of ten skills: put the learning partner at ease, clarify the learning expectation, show the learner how to verify answers, direct the learner on response procedures, provide feedback contingent on responses, help the partner to verify the response, avoid punishment, provide verbal praise when appropriate, provide tangible rewards when appropriate, and evaluate all elements of mastery on designated problems. Implications for special educators are discussed, and references and recommended readings are appended. (JW)
