Event Title

Role of Classroom Aides in the Literacy Classroom

Location

Edwards Hall Lobby

Document Type

Poster Presentation (1 hour)

Description

What roles do classroom aides have in an elementary classroom? As a researcher, I seek to examine how children develop skills of dependence and/or independence that may come from allowing a teacher aide to be included in a literacy classroom environment. Teaching is a never ending job that involves long hours of work and dedication to assure a student’s success in the learning process. Research methods including observations, interviews of teachers and teacher aids and a comparison of methods of children taught in a setting with assistance of an aide, verses test results of children placed in a room without an aide, will be used to answer the question. As a researcher it is very important to identify the impact of an aide included in a classroom environment.
