This handbook describes the 1969-70 Region II West Virginia New Careers in Education Program which includes three training and development components: (1) a 4-week summer preservice institute for teachers (K-12) and teacher aides and a 1-week institute for principals; (2) weekly inservice seminars for teachers and aides, on-the-job training for aides, and quarterly seminars for administrators; and (3) a career training program through which teacher aides may eventually become certified teachers. Contents include a tentative code of ethics for teacher aides; an organizational chart of the cooperative relationships between Shepherd College, the State Department of Education, and the eight eastern West Virginia county school systems; the career ladder model with job descriptions and education requirements for teacher aide interns, teacher aides, teacher assistants, and associate teachers; a tentative academic credit model for the associate in arts degree for teacher aides including course descriptions; curriculum outlines with objectives, techniques, materials, and assignments for the two summer institute components: the Role of the Teacher Aide (supervisory, technological, monitorial, clerical, general) and Language Arts Practices (communication skills, work attack skills, creative writing, handwriting, spelling, class organization, basal reading, individualized reading); and instruments for evaluating the training programs and the job performance of aides.
