Paraprofessionals in the Classroom: Workshop Guide.
RMC Research Corp., Denver, CO.; Chapter 1 Technical Assistance Center, Denver, CO. Region E.
This publication is a guide with the materials necessary for leading a workshop session on the role and responsibilities of paraprofessionals in Chapter 1 Program classrooms. Following a list of the transparencies and handouts used in the workshop as well as an outline of the 3- to 4-hour session, a note to the presenter discusses the advantages of having both teachers and paraprofessionals participate if possible and the possible ways to modify the session depending on the make-up of the audience. The actual guide to the session covers the following areas: (1) introduction/overview (looks at workshop objectives and an activity); (2) roles and responsibilities of teachers and paraprofessionals (provides a discussion and an activity for each group as well as a discussion of effective instructional teams); (3) categories of assistance (details the definitions and limitations of the aid that a paraprofessional can provide); (4) motivation (provides an activity and a discussion of factors in motivation); (5) extending students' thinking (presents Bloom's classification of levels of thinking and an activity); and (6) debriefing (provides for discussion and session evaluation). Throughout the guide graphics indicate when to use the 15 specially designed transparencies and 7 handouts. (JB)
