Summary

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of cross-age teaching experiences on the language achievement, self-concept, and school sentiment of eleventh graders who were identified as low achievers in language. Sixty eleventh-grade students were selected on the basis of language scores on the California Achievement Test and randomly assigned to one experimental and two control groups (Control I and Control II). Experimental and Control I students received three week's training in language arts and teaching techniques. Experimental subjects tutored fourth-grade students in language arts for nine weeks, and Control I returned to their regular classes. Control II students did not receive training nor did they tutor. The three groups were pre- and post-tested on the language section of the California Achievement Test, Piers-Harris Children's Self Concept Scale, and the School Interest Inventory. Results of an analysis of covariance, using pretest scores as covariate, while not significant, showed interesting trends in the areas of self-concept and school sentiment. Tutors were found to be valuable assets in the classroom and represented a viable addition to the existing curriculum. (Author)
