Handbook for Pima and Maricopa Indian Teacher Aides.
Chilcott, John H., Comp.; And Others
The handbook is the result of an Indian Teacher Aide Training Program conducted in 1970 at several Indian schools in Arizona. Content of the document was derived from talks, discussions, projects, and lectures included in the training program. As noted, rather than using a university-program-centered approach, a problem-centered approach was used by drawing from what teachers and Indian aides felt was important in their day-to-day classroom operations. Information contained in the document is specifically designed for use of the Pima Reservation. Questions are posed and answers provided regarding the role of the teacher aide in the classroom, duties thought to be appropriate for the aide, and the role of the aide as a school agent in the community. Cultural differences which are likely to create learning problems are discussed, and information is provided on discipline, health, and games. (EL)
