A few pointers (I assume you haven't found them already...):

A great tutorial: Teach Yourself Scheme In Fixnum Days (I recommend
this one!)

Some documentation (Guile-oriented):

Learning lecture: How to design programs:

The book: Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs:

Some general Scheme pointers:

And, of course, you can do a web search for `+scheme +tutorial' and
you will have enough to read for the rest of the year ;)
