The Effect of the Paraprofessional Teaching Experience on Communication in the Family.
Bronstein, Ruth Liya
This study hypothesized that low-income mothers employed as paraprofessional teachers may significantly change their verbal communication with their own school-age children. Two public schools in New York City provided the population for this study. The study was exploratory, planned as a vehicle to discover variables in the possible transfer of communication attitudes and practices rather than as an instrument to compute the statistical probability of such transfer. When the paraprofessionals' communication prior to school employment was analyzed, respondents fell into three groups. The first group, reporting prior middle-class norms, found little job-induced change. The second group, the largest, reporting norms close to middle-class values, were able to implement those norms as a result of job-induced change. The third group, the smallest, reported little change or desire to change their previous low value on familiar communication. (Author/DI)
