Working with Teacher Aides; A Three-In-One Resource Manual for School Administrators (Part A), for Classroom Teachers (Part B), for Teacher Aides (Part C). Croft Leadership Action Folio No. 7.
Becker, Harry A., Ed.
This folio on working with teacher aides contains three parts, one each for the school administrator, the classroom teacher, and the teacher aide. Part A contains a plan (with eight exhibits including selected readings, model policies and regulations, sample pay schedules, sample job descriptions, and sample aide application forms) for the school superintendent's use in planning and financing a teacher aide program and in recruiting and training the aides. The classroom teacher is given part B of the folio which explains (with six exhibits such as a teacher's report, 101 tasks for aides, an outline of a community preservice training course for aides, a sample team aide schedule form, and a sample evaluation form) how the aide can be of help to the teacher and how to plan the aide's work, help the aide, set priorities and coordinate aide activities if the aide is shared, and evaluate and develop educationally the aide. The final part, serving as a handbook for the teacher aide, explores the opportunities and rewards of being an aide, the various roles involved in working with teachers, and some methods to be used in working with children. Exhibits for aides include definitions of education terms, a capsule history of American education, a career development ladder, a job description, and a lesson plan outline. (SM)
