Maurer, Nelson S.; And Others
The program outlined in this publication is designed to develop paraprofessional workers as competent helpers and aides to the educational staff. It is designed specifically to assist directors of occupational- and adult education and supervisors and teachers of home economics. The publication is organized in three sections, an appendix, and a selected bibliography. Section I - Administrative Considerations, suggests procedures to help contribute to a successful program: formation of an advisory committee; selection of the instructional team; recruitment and selection of students; and provision for adequate course facilities. Section II - Training Program Guidelines and Contents, overviews the program and discusses job clusters, descriptions, and responsibilities. Section III - Local Course Development, covers suggested time allocation for modules, organizing a local course study, motivating the adult student, and evaluating the local course. The appendix consists of suggested activities for paraprofessionals, self-analysis questionnaires, a job interview situation, student evaluation form, and course evaluation questionnaire. (LS)
