Course of Study for the Student Aides for Kindergarten Teachers Program: A Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Grade Supervised Internship.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
This volume presents a course of study for an internship program for high school student aides in the kindergarten classroom. Designed as a practical guide to techniques, activities and resources needed to develop basic helping skills, the course has three major components: (1) orientation, (2) training and (3) in-service seminars. Orientation, conducted in the spring preceding the aide experience, includes visits to the assigned school and meetings with the classroom teacher, fellow student aides and a coordinating teacher specialist. The spring-summer training session provides experience with materials and activities as well as basic skills training. The volume's 100-page section on Suggested Training Activities provides objectives, assessment measures and activities in five major competency-training areas (from the Child Development Associate program): setting up and maintaining a safe and healthy learning environment; advancing physical and intellectual competence; building positive self-concept and individual strength; organizing and sustaining the positive functioning of children in a group learning environment; and carrying out supplementary responsibilities related to children's programs. The inservice seminar section provides background materials on: art, careers involving children, language skills development, learning disabilities, mathematics, music, and other topics. Also included: an annotated bibliography, the text of a 41-page Student Aide Handbook, and various sample forms. (BF)
