What Makes Literacy Tutoring Effective?
Juel, Connie
Reading Research Quarterly, v31 n3 p268-89 Jul-Sep 1996
Explores factors accounting for the success of poor readers (college students) tutoring other poor readers (elementary school students). Finds that using texts that gradually and repetitively introduced high-frequency vocabulary and engaging children in direct letter-sound instruction were important. Finds that scaffolding of reading and writing and modeling of how to read and spell unknown words were important. (RS)
