Beyond Tutoring: After-School Literacy Instruction
Saddler, Bruce; Staulters, Merry
Intervention in School and Clinic, v43 n4 p203-209 2008
One of the greatest challenges facing teachers is accommodating struggling, diverse, and at-risk readers. Even with the use of effective, research-based techniques, many children fail to make adequate progress in reading and may need additional assistance. One way to provide this assistance is through tutoring. This article outlines a successful after-school reading project that utilized university graduate students as tutors for struggling readers. The authors discuss both challenges and solutions associated with the project. (Contains 2 figures.)
