Grubbs, Natalie
Georgia School Counselors Association Journal, v16 n1 p21-31 2009
The results of a study that examined the peer tutoring program at a middle school are discussed in this article. In an effort to determine ways to improve the peer tutoring program an action research (AR) mixed design study was developed. AR is practitioner based research. Its purpose is to examine the work of practitioners for effectiveness and to suggest changes in the program if ef ectiveness is not demonstrated. AR is a collaborative process of inquiry that integrates the perspectives of colleagues to make appropriate changes for the betterment of program delivery (Stringer & Dwyer, 2004). The data substantiates the need for peer tutoring and provides information for making improvements to increase ef ectiveness as well as program participation. (Contains 4 tables.) [The research was completed under the direction of Susan Boes who also helped with design suggestions and all revisions.]
