Five staff members of the Educational Consulting Center contributed seven papers to this text for training teacher-aides.

"The Disadvantaged Child" discusses self-concept, its development, and its improvement. "The Climate for Teaching the Disadvantaged" discusses educationally disadvantaged students, the learning process, educational and fundamental goals, suburban youth, social class influences, underachievers, nonachievers, and teacher-student relationships. "Discipline in the Inner-City Classroom" enumerates 16 guidelines for minimizing discipline problems, and "The Teacher-Aide and the Audio-Visual Program" outlines duties for presentations and describes the functions of the equipment. "Guidelines for the Teacher-Aide" deals with personal qualities, filing an application, the interview, orientation, and academic involvement. "Legal Responsibilities of the Teacher-Aide" is the title of the final chapter. Supplementary activities are listed at the end of each chapter. (DO)
