TLC Tutoring Leading Cooperating: Training Activities for Elementary School Students.
McLaughlin, Miriam Smith; Hazouri, Sandra Peyser
This book contains a set of activities designed to help elementary school students learn the skills of tutoring, leading, and cooperating. The training activities presented in this book are intended to help students with their interpersonal relationships, as well as prepare them for a variety of helping roles. An introductory section defines the concepts of tutoring, leadership, and cooperation for students and explains to them how to begin creating a friendship album (a record of the student's work as a peer friend) and to keep track of their reactions to all of the learning experiences in the program. Activities are organized under the headings of Knowing Ourselves, Communication, Feelings, Working with Others, Tutoring, and Service to Others. Each individual activity provides information on the purpose of the activity, materials needs, procedures to follow, and instructions for what to add to the friendship album. Some activities also contain notes for leaders (adult teachers or counselors). A closing section describes how to end the peer class, and this is followed by additional information for leaders. (NB)
