Prospective Teachers as Tutors: Measuring the Impact of a Service-Learning Program on Upper Elementary Students
Jones, Brett D.; Stallings, D. T.; Malone, David
Teacher Education Quarterly, v31 n3 p99-118 Sum 2004
With the recent proliferation of college service-learning programs and tutoring programs, college students have more opportunities to serve as tutors in elementary schools than ever before. A number of reports have appeared in the research literature describing tutoring programs that could serve as models for tutoring initiatives. Based on this research, the authors developed a service-learning tutoring program for their undergraduate prospective teachers designed to provide support for them in what was for many their first experience as elementary school teachers. This article describes the service-learning tutoring program that the authors developed for prospective teachers. The authors assess the impact of the tutoring program on the tutees (elementary school children). They discuss the implications of the results within the context of the growing body of research literature on tutoring programs. (Contains 2 tables.)
