How does a cross-grade tutoring program impact organization and homework completion of two disorganized sixth grade students
This case study researched the effects of a cross-grade tutoring program involving high school students and two sixth grade students. Two high school students and two 6th grade students took part in the case study. The ultimate goal of the program was to see if teaching organizational skills and time management skills would increase organization and decrease the amount of late work. The results of the study suggest: 1) that students benefit from additional attention given by an older person 2) increased opportunities for more assistance throughout the school day for struggling students. The results of the study showed that students need help outside of school and many times the parents don't have time to give it to the students so the schools need to be providing some assistance to these at-risk students.
