Wise Utilization of Human Resources: The Paraprofessional in the Reading Program: Paraprofessionals and Reading.
Dauzat, Sam V.
Paraprofessionals have valuable roles to enact in the effective reading program; however, paraprofessionals in the classroom are justified only to the extent to which educational benefit accrues to the children in that classroom. Professionals must devise strategies whereby the resources in the classroom may be most effectively utilized and whereby the professional and paraprofessional may function as an educational team. Professionals must not squander on non-productive tasks the potential source of rich opportunities for children which the paraprofessional represents. The professional teacher of reading must assume the key role, while the paraprofessional assumes a supporting one; but this relationship should enhance the opportunities of each to make a positive educational impact on the lives of children in the reading program.
