An Annotated Bibliography of the Literature Dealing with the Educational and Social Benefits of Tutoring Programs.
This document provides (1) an annotated bibliography of 30 studies of the educational and social benefits of tutoring programs for handicapped and non-handicapped tutors and tutees and the importance of training in tutoring programs, and (2) a 6-page summary of the findings. Annotations are organized in five sections concerning training in tutoring programs, academic and motivational benefits of tutoring programs, and social benefits for the handicapped and the non-handicapped. The summary of research findings suggests that tutees with trained tutors outperform tutees with untrained tutors. Tutoring programs can produce significant academic gains. Some programs help motivate low-achievers, disadvantaged children, and disinterested pupils. Some produce gains in personal adjustment, self-esteem, social acceptance, school attitude, and social interaction in both handicapped and non-handicapped tutors and tutees. (RH)
