Description: An annotated bibliography: articles to help teachers deal with a classroom of learners with different abilities, different strengths and weaknesses, who are at different levels academically, behaviorally, and socially. The task of the teacher is a challenge, especially when students have trouble understanding and keeping up with the class. There are known advantages to working with a child one-on-one, but this is not always possible for a teacher to do. Cross-age tutoring seems to provide ways of dealing with such problems. Sometimes called "peer tutoring," cross-age tutoring occurs when a tutor is older than a tutee. Often participants will be "disadvantaged" or "at-risk."
