Providing Affordable, Community-Based Tutorial Services for K-8 Students Utilizing Master Teachers as Mentors to Preservice Education Majors.
Lopez, Mary Kathryn
The preservice teacher education practicum described in this practicum paper sought to provide affordable, convenient reading tutorial services for K-8 children. Participants were mentor teachers, preservice teachers, and students from the community. A twilight school was established that provided professional development opportunites for teachers in mentorship positions with preservice teachers from a campus-based college program. Evaluation questionnaires regarding general satisfaction with the program were completed by parents and mentors; these questionnaires served to measure the overall success of the twilight school. Outcomes of the practicum were positive: all objectives were reached successfully with positive feedback from all groups participating; mentorship provided a means for professional development of teachers, twilight school provided a reliable source of income for teachers as well as affordable, accessible, and amenable tutorial service for community children. A mission statement, and copies of teacher/mentor survey, mentor evaluation, parent evaluation, parent application, skills checklists, mentor coordinator's job description, individual instructional plan, and mentor's job description are appended.
