Tutoring Adolescent Readers shows teachers how to reap the benefits of one-to-one teaching by using volunteer tutors. It provides the information you need to incorporate a tutoring program that addresses a variety of student needs — from students who are unmotivated or have different learning styles to those learning English for the first time or who have a learning disability. Teachers will learn everything they need to create an effective tutoring program that supports classroom instruction. Setting up a tutoring program — from defining the roles and responsibilities of tutors to recruiting and training volunteers; Working with dependent readers — from identifying readers who need more help to tips for dealing with the specific learning needs and styles of students; Using explicit instruction — from encouraging tutors to recognize where students are and how to set goals to monitor and assess student progress; Promoting fluency and word recognition — from teaching cueing systems and modeling effective reading strategies to using specialized techniques for introducing and reviewing decoding skills. Resources that teachers can copy and use with tutors are an important part of this handy resource. These materials explain the essentials of reading instruction and investigate the variety of techniques that good readers use.

May the Forcing Functions be with You: The Stimulating World of AIED and ITS Research It is my pleasure to write the foreword for Advances in Intelligent Tutoring S- tems. This collection, with contributions from leading researchers in the field of artificial intelligence in education (AIED), constitutes an overview of the many challenging research problems that must be solved in order to build a truly intel- gent tutoring system (ITS). The book not only describes some of the approaches and techniques that have been explored to meet these challenges, but also some of the systems that have actually been built and deployed in this effort. As discussed in the Introduction (Chapter 1), the terms “AIED” and “ITS” are often used int- changeably, and there is a large overlap in the researchers devoted to exploring this common field. In this foreword, I will use the term “AIED” to refer to the - search area, and the term “ITS” to refer to the particular kind of system that AIED researchers build. It has often been said that AIED is “AI-complete” in that to produce a tutoring system as sophisticated and effective as a human tutor requires solving the entire gamut of artificial intelligence research (AI) problems.

Distance learning is becoming an increasingly popular way of studying, and most universities now provide courses using these methods. Today's students, though, are demanding high quality, consumer-focused and flexible courses, as well as learning resources and active learner support. This means that providers of distance education need to reconsider key issues about their learner support systems, ensuring that this is delivered appropriately and effectively. Considering the changing needs and demands of distance education students, this book draws together contributions from the UK, USA, Hong Kong, Australia, Japan, South Africa and Botswana, to offer an international perspective on: * the challenges and opportunities of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) * quality assurance, commercialisation and the learner as consumer * the impact on learners of cultural differences on internationalised curricula * the implications for learner support of a wider range of learners This book should be read by all those involved in developing and delivering distance education courses.

This text provides a quick, basic introduction to the essentials of peer tutoring. Study questions, questions for research projects, and exercises at the end of each chapter help prepare readers for the challenges they will face in the tutoring environment.

Each guide in this series examines a particular aspect of the composition specialist's work; for example, teaching first-year composition, administration-related issues, and writing as it is taught across campus. Providing theoretical information within a practical context, each guide is designed to provide the historical knowledge and terminology that beginning students in the field need to understand.

Inside each of us is the promise of a tutor. If you've ever taught a child to tie her shoe, or helped a friend with his homework, or even helped a stranger understand a posted sign, you have it in you to empower others through learning. Tutors are allowed to do what teachers and parents are often not able to do. They can be patient, observe, question, support, challenge, and applaud. They can move towards nurturing the true and total intelligence of their tutees. Learning to tutor is simply overcoming fears, sharing and acquiring knowledge, and appreciating the potential and wisdom in each other. Tutoring Matters is the authoritative manual for both the aspiring and seasoned tutor. Using firsthand experiences of over one hundred new and experienced tutors, this long-awaited guide offers chapters on attitudes and anxieties, teaching techniques, and building relationships. It educates the tutor on how to handle and appreciate social and language differences; how to use other adults—teachers, administrators, parents, employers—to a student's advantage; and, when your student or circumstances determine that it's time, how to put a positive and supportive end to the tutor-tutee relationship. Written by experienced tutors and tutoring educators, Tutoring Matters celebrates—and provides just the right tools for—an individualized and successful tutoring relationship and shows just how much you can learn—about the world and yourself—through teaching others. Author note: Jerome Rabow, the recipient of numerous distinguished teaching awards, is co-author of Cracks in the Classroom Wall: An Analysis with Readings. He is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the University of California, Los Angeles. Tiffani Chin is an experienced tutor and Ph.D. Candidate researching education and sociology at UCLA. Nima Fahimian, also an experienced tutor, studies medicine at the UCLA School of Medicine.

ITS 2000 is the fifth international conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems. The preceding conferences were organized in Montreal in 1988, 1992, and 1996. These conferences were so strongly supported by the international community that it was decided to hold them every two years. ITS’98 was organized by Carol Redfield and Valerie Shute and held in San Antonio, Texas. The program committee included members from 13 countries. They received 140 papers (110 full papers and 30 young researchers papers) from 21 countries. As with any international conference whose proceedings serve as a reference for the field, the program committee faced the demanding task of selecting papers from a particularly high quality set of submissions. This proceedings volume contains 61 papers selected by the program committee from the 110 papers submitted. They were presented at the conference, along with six invited lectures from well known speakers. The papers cover a wide range of subjects including architectures for ITS, teaching and learning strategies, authoring systems, learning environments, instructional designs, cognitive approaches, student modeling, distributed learning environments, evaluation of instructional systems, cooperative systems, Web based training systems, intelligent agents, agent based tutoring systems, intelligent multimedia and hypermedia systems, interface design, and intelligent distance learning.
