Flipbook captures quick tips for classroom volunteers
Classrooms are busy places. Teachers must meet more and more requirements.
"Parents, senior citizens, community volunteers and para educators provide teachers with extra hands and positively impact students,” says Paddy Eger, author of the new pocket-sized Educating America Desktop Flipbook.
She says we must support those volunteers with easy-to-follow guidelines to help them:
- structure their allotted time
- set expectations
- develop their questioning skills
In her latest publication, Educating America Desktop Flipbook, Paddy Eger creates a handy pocket-sized easel with two purposes. "One side lists assistant reminders, the other side shares students reminders," she said.
The ideas in the flipbook are based on Paddy Eger's award winning book, Educating America: 101 Strategies for Adult Assistants in K-8 Classrooms.
Together they provide suggestions and practices gathered during her twenty-year career as a teacher and volunteer trainer.
A cross reference that links the two books is available from the author's website: www.paddyeger.com.
Educating America Desktop Flipbook is available at independent bookstores, online, from the publisher at TendrilPress.com, or from Paddy Eger at www.paddyeger.com.
