Abbott, Margaret; And Others
This final report of the 3-year Grand Forks, North Dakota, ESEA Title III project focuses on the impact on the school district (11,500 pupils) and its instructional program of a six-school experiment in which two elementary and one junior high school were provided with one teacher aide for each six teachers. The introduction describes the community-school setting and objectives of the program. Part 1, "We Saw It Happen: Individualized Instruction," has sections on flexible scheduling, the contract system, differentiated staffing rationale and description, vocational core, training teacher aides, inservice training, and evaluation implications. Part 2 describes the significance of the impact of teacher aides on schools. Part 3 contains reports of the program in each experimental school. Part 4, "The Teacher Aide in Special Education," has sections on language development, teaching motor coordination, and a comparative study of traditional procedures and operant conditioning procedures as applied to speech correction in public schools. Part 5 summarizes subjective evaluations by teachers and aides. Part 6 lists 25 publications (including various progress and continuation reports) and two films disseminated by the project. (ED 035 576 and ED 035 579 are related documents.) (JS)
