Last week we offered some “discussion starters” and questions that teachers, and their paraprofessionals, might consider when talking about lesson plans. This week’s thoughts address Instruction:

  • Will the paraprofessional provide input into the planning process for either specific students or the class in general? If so, how will the classroom teacher gain that input?
  • Will the paraprofessional have input into lesson planning, or planning for reteaching?
  • When and how should the paraprofessional’s experience in the classroom contribute to interventions used with non-responders or students with special needs?
