This comprehensive, hands-on guide is designed especially for the paraeducator!
Outlining the portfolio development process from start to finish, Portfolio Development for Paraeducators is filled with practical strategies and suggestions for reflective documentation of skills and knowledge. In this age of federal standards mandated under the “No Child Left Behind Act,” this book is a must-have for every current or future paraeducator.
In a nutshell, Portfolio Development for Paraeducators:
Attention Administrators! Do you need a practical approach to evaluating the skills and knowledge of the paraeducator? Use of the portfolio, combined with an interview, streamlines the evaluation process and provides the reviewer with concrete, well-organized information, and requires the paraeducator to engage in self-evaluation and professional development throughout. This book will guide you through efficient and meaningful means of documenting the “highly qualified” status of the paraeducators in your district in order to meet federal standards.
