DESCRIPTIOIN Ten years ago, the responsibilities of todays TAs were very poorly defined. Occasional classroom assistants or ancillaries were employed in schools to help with general classroom management. They required no training and had no official job description. Nowadays there has been a radical change in classroom practice and education law. TAs have formal role, often associated with special education needs. This book has been written in conjunction with teaching assistants themselves to explain all there is to know about getting and enjoying the job! Packed with practical and sympathetic advice the book includes: * How Teaching Assistants came to be * How to get the job - what does it involve? * How to spot whether a child has special needs * How to get the best out of children with special needs * How to help with spelling and writing * Supporting literacy - hearing readers * How to cope with the paperwork, IEPs and the rest * The highs and lows of being a TA *
