Directed Tutoring Approach To Increase Library Circulation: An Alternative Approach to the Instruction of African-American Male Students.
Lynn, Karen
An experiment sought to determine the effectiveness of a program for improving achievement among black seventh and eighth grade social studies students. The aim was to develop a media center service program that would support school district efforts to provide educational and support services for the black male. An audiovisual tutoring program within the media center emphasized listening and comprehension skills. Based upon the Directed Inquiry Audiovisual Activity method, the program involved the media generalist and students in a "who, what, where, when, how" questioning sequence. Instruction entailed the use of television equipment and videotaped recordings of classic poems. Students produced notebooks that included viewing and discussion notes, a poetry book report, and a personal critique of the session. The program achieved its goals and objectives. Teachers and the media generalist worked together and employed poetry tapes to bring about student discussion and analysis of poetry and ultimately student poems. The document includes examples of student poems. (SG)
