MEET OUR NEW TITLE 1 PARAPROFESSIONAL
Two Different Models
With this approach, the general education teacher and the title teacher work together in close collaboration. The focus is to ensure students are receiving full access to the general education curriculum while limiting any disruption to their daily schedule (such as pulling students out of a classroom). This also includes the implementation of specially designed modifications within the classroom setting.
To implement this approach in the classroom, teachers can form small groups of two or three students, grouped according to their level. This can help with personalizing the teaching without sacrificing class instruction time.
Depending on the student’s education needs, he or she may require to also receive small group or individual instruction with the title teacher in another setting outside of the general education classroom (Title Room). Instruction will focus either on reading, language arts, and/or mathematics, according to the student’s needs. In addition, when deemed necessary and appropriate, a student may be pulled out of a general education setting for assistance with completing an exam, benchmark exams, progress monitoring probes, and other assignments (both long and short-term) as assigned by the general education teachers and the Title teachers.
Specially designed instruction may be provided in a regular classroom setting and/or within the title room “pull-out” setting depending on the student’s individual needs. The ultimate goal is to ensure full access to the general education curriculum and programming to students needs.
