Student Aide 11 / 12

Course Outline Student Aide 11 / 12

Course Duration: You have one calendar year to complete this course from the date of Activation.

The purpose of Student Aide 11/12 is to provide the sponsor teacher with support in all aspects in their classroom. In most cases, the Student Aide will be mentoring students in class, though the sponsor teacher may assign other appropriate classroom duties (filing, word‐processing, photocopying, and so on).

In the mentoring role, the Student Aide will be introduced to the skills needed to assist other students in the classroom. In addition, Student Aides will research different barriers to learning (learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, and self‐esteem) and discover what strategies used to combat those barriers. Ideally, as mentors help other students towards increased independence, discipline, self‐management and motivation, they too will experience similar growth.

Whether working as mentor and/or teacher’s helper, the Student Aide’s assessment will be based on:

Student Aide – class expectations

1. Once the initial training is complete and the Student Aide is assigned to a classroom teacher, it is expected the student will: attend each schedule block / be prompt / come prepared / be positive / dress appropriately. Remember, as a Student Aide you are a role model and the expectations placed on your behaviour is above those of your peers.

2. If there is an occasion that the sponsor teacher does not have a task to work on or student to work with, the Student Aide is to report to the Career Centre for an alternate assignment. Student Aides found supervised will be dropped from the course.

3. Student Aides are to submit their log sheets every two weeks online*.
