Using Paraprofessionals as Reading Aides.
Rauch, Sidney J.
The use of paraprofessionals in the schools has been accepted on a nationwide scale. It is no longer a question of whether they should be used in the classroom but how best to prepare them and to use their talents and potential. The author offers suggestions and guidelines for accomplishing these goals. Topics covered were (1) selection, including such precautions as (a) making sure everyone concerned knows that the classroom teacher is in charge and (b) correctly teaming classroom teacher and paraprofessional; (2) preparation of paraprofessionals as reading aides and provision for their advancement; (3) the instructional program (preservice and inservice), including a suggested listing of basic topics to be covered; (4) reading jobs for the paraprofessional; and (5) teacher evaluation of paraprofessionals, including a sample evaluation form. A bibliography is included. (NH)
