Teachers Aide/Language and other Barriers
posted by AspiringTeacherandMotherofFour .
13. In an ESL classroom, teacher aides should prepare themselves to
A. learn or become familiar with appropriate language-related software programs.
B. handle all disciplinary measures that arise on behalf of the teacher.
C. counsel parents regarding their childâ€™s progress or problems.
D. construct lesson plans as needed.
Not even able to figure this out. There are so many different areas that I feel the aide would be used....however these are my feelings, "B" would not be the answer because I feel it would be the Teachers responsibility to handle disciplinary action.
"D" Seems to be the answer I am thinking but not sure.
However, "A" Would seem to be the possible right answer also. I have read where the Aide would have to familiarize themselves with another language so it would be logically to say the same about software.
This is what my text says:
One of the computer-related duties of an ESL aide may be to become
familiar with the language arts software programs available in the
schoolâ€™s computer lab.
B, C, and D are all in the teacher's job description. The only answer is A.
The job of any aide is to be and to remain useful to the teacher and students. This includes learning about all sorts of things so that he/she can support/assist the teacher in whatever is needed.
I agree with Writeacher. Please note that the language program is an English language arts program, not a foreign language.
Ok that you for clarifying that for me Ms. Sue.
I am trying so hard to keep my grade point average high in order to be successful in my goal of becoming an Aide.
I am finding that the answers however, are becoming a little more difficult to find. :D
Well, I should say, they are harder for me to find.
I appreciate all the input.
