Lighten Your Load with Volunteers: A Guide for Teachers, Administrations, Parents, and Community Volunteers.
Hendricks, Meg; Enk, Jean
This resource guide for teachers and administrators gives practical suggestions on ways to recruit, train, use and keep parent and community volunteers in the schools and classrooms. Pre-planning activities (workshops, rap sessions, and inservice meetings) for administrators and school staff are discussed. Techniques for recruiting parents and community volunteers and methods of overcoming problems relative to recruitment of vounteers are listed. General methods for training classroom volunteers are mentioned, and specific "how-to" training suggestions focus on such topics as general routines, reinforcement of a skill, using a game, managing a center or teaching a small group, tutoring, enrichment of study, interpersonal relationships, and supervising students. Specific ways of using the volunteer in the classroom, the school and the home are also listed. Tangible, semi-tangible, and intangible methods of rewarding volunteers are suggested as well as hints for overcoming some specific human relations' problems. (Author/SE)
