The Preparation of Pre-Professional Teacher Aides in the Community College.
Schmidt, Roger
Community colleges can serve teacher aides through providing low-cost opportunities to continue their education and to take courses with immediate application to their employment. Although initial employment positions require no more than a high school diploma, teacher aides are getting additional training through local certificate programs and/or through the college's general education programs. San Bernardino City Schools created three non-certified positions: classroom aide, tutorial assistant, and community aide. It is felt that emphasis in student recruitment and program planning should be on minority and disadvantaged groups. Community colleges might also offer teacher preparation courses for those students who plan to teach after receiving their B.A., but who wish to work in the field in the meantime. Three possible courses are: introduction to education, practicum in school procedures and resources, and field experience in education. (CA)
