Publisher: Cogent Catalyst Publications
Author: Susan Gingras Fitzell M.Ed
The book provides practical solutions for confusing or opposing teaching strategies that paraprofessionals and teachers experience during collaboration. Working Together explains the importance of starting a dialogue with your colleague, for one, and sustaining communication with all parties involved in order to avoid situations that hinder the learning process. It also suggests having a systematic approach to education thereby removing the guesswork from working together. You'll find more instructions on effective strategies are supplied with forms and charts to prepare educators in this second edition book. Personal checklists included in the book outline necessary steps to achieve positive changes in behavior and information retention in students. Other forms and charts organize data to assist in making informed decisions about what techniques will have the most success. Paraprofessionals and teachers are encouraged to take full advantage of having the organizational tools already created for them.
