Training the Reading Team: A Guide for Supervisors of a Volunteer Tutoring Program.
Walker, Barbara J.; Scherry, Ronald; Morrow, Lesley Mandel
This book provides guidance and practical information for the organization of a volunteer tutoring program. Three sections take supervisors through each step of the program, including: publicizing, obtaining funding, establishing roles of each team member, training volunteers in effective tutoring, and assessing each student's and tutor's progress. A script-like explanation of each tutor training session is also included. Appendixes include 21 overhead and 7 handout masters for the training sessions, as well as numerous sample pre-interview surveys and letters for implementation and evaluation of the program. (EF)
