An Identification and Analysis of the Existing Needs for Teacher Aides in Programs of Vocational Education in Agriculture and a Suggested Program for Teacher Aide Education.
Durkee, James R.
This study identified and analyzed the various aspects of the responsibilities and education of teacher aides assigned to work in programs of agricultural vocational education. Vocational agricultural teachers, high school administrators, and state supervisors of agricultural education in the United States were surveyed to obtain information on the need for, the role of, and an educational program for preparing teacher aides. There was a definite need for teacher aides to work with the teachers and students in programs of vocational agriculture. There were definite assignments for aides in programs of vocational education in agriculture that contributed to the improvement of the program for the student, the teacher, and the educational services. The following were deemed important in the work of an aide: (a) clerical duties, (b) assignments (securing and developing teaching materials for classroom instruction, agricultural mechanics, and young and adult farmer programs), (c) services for the student-related activities, (d) duties in the agricultural mechanics programs and land laboratories, (e) work with the Future Farmer organization, and (f) tasks in the community. A definite need to have a two-year program for teacher aide education developed by institutions of higher education, was expressed. (NL)
