Paraeducators in Physical Education
Piletic, Cindy; Davis, Ronald; Aschemeier, Amy
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v76 n5 p47 May-Jun 2005
Paraeducators have long been employed in the classroom, but their services have not yet been fully put to use in the gymnasium. With the ever-increasing number of physically and mentally challenged students enrolled in general education classes, paraeducators are becoming an essential part of any physical education class. This article explores the various uses of a paraeducator in the gymnasium and explains how they can best aid physical educators. The authors stress that the working relationship between paraeducators and physical educators must include much discussion and clearly defined expectations.
