Paraprofessional Training Manual.
Chapter 1 Rural Technical Assistance Center, Portland, OR. Region 6.; Chapter 1 Rural Technical Assistance Center, Portland, OR. Region 7.; Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
This manual is designed to assist paraprofessionals and teachers in forming a strong instructional team dedicated to helping Chapter 1 students succeed in the regular school program. Paraprofessionals often arrive in Chapter 1 classrooms with little or inadequate training. In addition, Chapter 1 and regular classroom teachers working with teacher aides rarely have a clear notion of how best to use the paraprofessional's skills. In many cases, both the teacher and the paraprofessional must learn their respective roles, and how to work together, on the job. This manual contains two sections: (1) "Through the Teacher's Eyes" featuring suggestions for teachers working with paraprofessionals; and (2) "Through the Paraprofessional's Eyes" containing suggestions and guidelines for paraprofessionals working with teachers and Chapter 1 students. The manual emphasizes the role which the paraprofessional can play as a liason between the school and the community, especially with Native American students and students with limited English proficiency.
