The Benefits of a Tutor Training Manual. Action Research Monograph.
Roles, Stacey
The Lycoming County (Pennsylvania) Literacy Project hosts a tutor training workshop approximately four times per year to certify tutors to teach its learners. Previously, the information provided for the tutors at this workshop consisted of nearly 100 handouts distributed at random. Comments and observations indicated that having such a large amount of information distributed in a disorderly fashion created a problem for both the instructors and the learners at the training workshops. The handouts were revised and compiled with other useful information into a tutor training manual. Results of a survey given to both the instructors and learners indicated the development and implementation of the tutor training manual provided more useful, usable, and comprehensive training for everyone, as compared to simply dispersing handouts. (A questionnaire on the handbook is appended.) (YLB)
