The Reading Excellence Program: Components of a Model for Delivering Tutorial Assistance in Reading for At-Risk Students.
Williams, Claudette H.
The Reading Excellence program seeks to provide a cadre of trained volunteers to deliver tutorial assistance in reading to at-risk students during non-instructional times that will result in significant improvement in student performance on reading and language arts as measured by their age-appropriate standardized tests. This paper describes the program model, noting that the model uses a technology-based tutorial program to support and enhance the tutorial program before and after students work with their tutor/teacher. The paper addresses tutor recruitment and tutor training, as well as at-risk student recruitment. It also discusses tutorial scheduling, parental involvement, program administration, and evaluating program effectiveness. (NKA)
