Utilization of Teacher Aides...A Publication For Those Concerned With the Recruitment, Selection, Preparation and Utilization of Teacher Aides.
Center for the Study of Migrant and Indian Education, Toppenish, WA.
In response to area schools' requests, the Center for the Study of Migrant and Indian Education at Washington State College has compiled a set of guidelines for the recruitment, selection, preparation and utilization of teacher aides. The source for the guideline data was a Teacher Aide Training Program initiated in October of 1968, wherein 415 aides were given direct instruction. Specific topics in the guide include (1) rationale for employing teacher aides, (2) goals for teacher-aide training, (3) qualifications for teacher aides, (4) needs of migrant children, (5) cultural differences, and (6) suggested teacher-aide duties. Methods and techniques employed in the program are to be published at a later date. The informal findings indicate that the teacher aide is valuable not only to the teacher but also to the pupil, school, and community. (BD)
