Techniques for Remediation: Peer Tutoring. BASICS: Bridging Vocational and Academic Skills.
Pritz, Sandra G.; Crowe, Michael R.
This guide focuses on the application of peer tutoring as a strategy for remediation of basic skills in secondary vocational settings. Additional benefits of using a joint vocational-academic approach are highlighted. The guide is part of BASICS, a package of integrated materials developed to assist teachers, administrators, and counselors in bridging vocational and academic skills. The guide addresses the phases of program planning, program development, and program evaluation as the organizational themes. Each phase is discussed in terms of its operational components. Program planning is concerned with the tasks relevant to preparation of a program plan or proposal: needs assessment and program objectives, administration and coordination, materials, facilities and equipment, budget, and resource needs. Program development addresses the tasks involved in initiating the operation of each component: orientation, faculty in-service training, tutor recruitment and selection, tutor training, tutee intake, matching, and assignment. Program evaluation incorporates several types of evaluative techniques effective in assessing peer tutoring program. The tasks addressed are identifying the information and evaluation instruments needed, collecting and analyzing the data, reporting the results, and modifying the program. Appendixes contain samples of commonly needed forms and a series of helpful tips for tutors. (YLB)
