From one of the nation’s leading authorities, Dr. Nancy French, University of Colorado at Denver, comes a comprehensive and powerful two-set DVD for the effective supervision and training of paraeducators. In today’s school environments, teacher aides/assistants/monitors play a critical support role in the delivery of quality instruction, the implementation of accommodations/modifications for students with special needs, as well as in the supervision/monitoring of students during less structured times of the day.
In order to most effectively utilize paraeducators, schools need to provide an environment where teachers "coach" and paraeducators "learn" to better understand their roles and responsibilities. This DVD program addresses the supervision and support of paraeducators as they work in:
• Inclusive/co-teaching classrooms
• Response To Intervention (RTI) and data collection roles
• Implementing instructional accommodations modifications
• Student supervision and behavior monitoring
This DVD set is cost-effective for the training of both teachers and paraeducators.
