New Careers: The Teacher Aide. A Manual for Trainers.
Steinberg, Sheldon S.; Fishman, Jacob R.
This manual is intended for use by trainers of teacher aides in New Careers programs (which focus on training the unemployed and/or underemployed for entry-level placement as nonprofessionals in human service occupations). An introductory chapter considers the qualifications of the training team, qualifications of the trainee, the function and job description of the teacher aide in both elementary and secondary schools, and the need for realistic career mobility. Chapter 2 describes typical problems encountered in teacher aide training and outlines possible solutions. In Chapter 3, the organization and structure of the New Careers Training Model are explained, including the rationale for curriculum content areas, points to stress during training, articulation of program components, and program scheduling. Chapter 4 presents a basic curriculum in education, complete with suggested discussion units and activities, consisting of selected resource material for the trainer to use in enabling the teacher aide trainee to develop insight into education in general as well as his local school system. Also included are a glossary of New Careers terms, a list of audiovisual aids (and their distributors) and basic training materials, and an explication of the basic concepts of the New Careers Training Model.
