Increased Tutor Participation. Action Research Monograph.
Corle, Daniel
This project was developed to increase attendance at inservices and workshops that are provided to continue the training of tutors in the South Pittsburgh office of the Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council (GPLC). A questionnaire was designed and mailed to all (about 20) tutors in the area to obtain input about how prepared they felt, and whether they felt they were receiving enough support and interaction from the organization. Four forms were returned and indicated that: (1) respondents felt positively about the training and felt well-prepared; (2) they gave high marks to the question about usefulness of materials and whether they were receiving enough support from their coordinators and GPLC; (3) they saw the factors of location and time as interferences with workshops; and (4) they felt more prepared at each phase of additional training, involvement in the tutoring, or training process. Students who responded to a questionnaire about their tutors were positive, but these results did not appear to reflect the reality. More aggressive marketing of the workshops included sending updated information about the workshops along with recommendations for specific tutors to attend them. An advanced certificate was offered for all tutors who completed an additional six hours of training. No tutor mentioned an interest in the certificate. Appended are the two questionnaire. (YLB)
