Instructional Aide Program.
Thomson, Henry
The Instructional Aide Program (Shoreline Community College, Seattle, Washington) is a flexible curriculum designed to prepare students to meet the paraprofessional manpower needs of several kinds of institution. It was prepared after consultation with representatives of the schools, the YMCA, and the country park system. Other agencies still to be consulted include the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, Campfire Girls, religious institutions, and the public libraries. There is a special need for graduates who can work with remedial or handicapped students, in art, music, and physical education, as attendants, playground supervisors, bus drivers, secretarial assistants, etc. From these consultations, it was estimated that the college could place 35-40 aides per year. The curriculum stresses the fundamentals of speech, typing, intergroup relations, working with groups, instructional techniques, and psychological and sociological principles. A core curriculum would meet generalized objectives and permit the student to choose related activities. The faculty developing this program must be carefully chosen--preferably those young enough to grow with the program, energetic enough to supervise the interns, with at least two years of teaching experience, and with administrative potential. A tentative curriculum for the Aide Program is presented. (HH)
