Summary

To relieve the non-instructional burden upon the classroom teacher, the quemado public schools experimented with a teacher aide program, utilizing a single teacher aide in elementary language arts and high school programed mathematics the first year of the project. As a result of the experiment's success, the following school year (1963-1964) classroom aides were employed in each of the 4 quemado public schools covering all subject matter areas. As a consequence of the increased number of classroom aides employed, it became necessary to define a classroom aide, and outline an aide's qualifications and duties. Use of the classroom aide allowed the teacher more time for individualizing instruction, developing teaching materials, and trial-testing classroom experiments and demonstrations prior to their use. Time for small group instruction became more of a reality because the teacher was freed from such non-instructional duties as collecting money, taking attendance, and marking objective type tests and workbooks. It was suggested that a program of teacher aide preparation be undertaken either by local school systems, or by colleges and universities. (da)
