Researching the Pupil Voice: What Makes a Good Teaching Assistant?
Bland, Ken; Sleightholme, Sandra
Support for Learning, v27 n4 p172-176 Nov 2012
This article reports on a small-scale research project concerning the views of pupils on what comprises a good teaching assistant (TA). The study indicates that pupils clearly valued the support given to them by TAs. The pupils outlined the main personal and professional characteristics they wanted to see in, as well as the kinds of support they wanted from, a TA. The implications of these data for schools and for TAs themselves are briefly indicated. (Contains 1 table.)
