Educating America Getting Started:
A Teacher’s Planning Guide for Including Adult Assistants

As a teacher, you work long hours reading curriculum and studying and creating materials to help your students grow and learn.

School districts, states and national standards require educators to accomodate a wide variety of skill levels in students. These mandates increase your workload. It's time we move beyond asking parents to bring cookies to parties and inviting community members to attend school concerts and events. It's time to use parents as resources to help our classrooms. It's time to engage the greater community in educating our country's students.

This workbook is designed to help focus your thinking before you put out the call for classroom assistants. It stands alone but also supplements and expands on the information provided in the award-winning book, Educating America: 101 Strategies for Adult Assistants in K-8 Classrooms.

  • Practical techniques show you how to build a team of volunteers that function effectively and produce results.
  • Clear text and sample forms cover every aspect of volunteer management.
  • Simple checklists enable you to be fully prepared for volunteers through out the school year.
  • Accessible charts and forms help you explore different options for each volunteer and provideuseful examples.

Educating America Student Reminders

Student Reminder Sheets

Classrooms are busy places, especially when small groups are in use. The enclosed sheets share reminders of your expectations for students. If used in sequential order, they follow a group's process: listening, talking, working, participating, staying on task.

These reminders may be used with the Educating America Desktop Flipbook or alone. Laminating each sheet will increase its life. After each sheet is discussed, it may be hung up in the classroom for future reference.
