Paraeducator Instructional Institute Curriculum Outline.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
This curriculum outline represents the design framework for the development of a Paraeducator Instructional Institute Curriculum. The intent of the curriculum is to help Title I paraeducators in Montana meet the qualification requirements set forth under Title I, Section 1119(c) of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. The curriculum is organized into seven modules. The first three explore professional standards for Title I paraeducators based on guidelines developed by the National Resource Center for Paraprofessionals in Education; the fundamental roles, responsibilities, and functions of the teacher-paraprofessional instructional team; and an examination of effective classroom practices. The fourth module provides an overview of effective instructional practices, setting the stage for the last three modules. These last three focus on developing the knowledge and skills that paraeducators will need to assist their directing teachers in the instruction of reading, writing, and mathematics. The curriculum modules were developed to be delivered in a sequence of three 2-day institutes over the course of 1 year. This allows time for the application and practice of learning at the work site. (SM)
