If so, what are they responsible for doing?

I have had aides in my room before. They usually work with small groups (usually the lower students) to re-teach or help with assignments. They may do stations with groups to help keep students are task. When I am giving direct instruction the aide will walk around the room or sit by one student as needed again to help students stay on task. Depending on who is in your room you could also do some team teaching or have the aide teach small groups or lead guided reading. I also know some teachers who have the aide work with the higher students so that frees about the teacher to focus on the struggling students.

It does depend on your style and who your aide is. Good luck! I have always found it wonderful to have an extra person in the room.

went from being a "subject based" Title school to a full title school. The difference . . . more inclusion of children that used to spend more time in the Learning Center in remedial groups and 30 minutes a day of aide time. Aides are supposed to work only with mid-level children while the teacher works with struggling learners. I usually have my aide work one-on-one with students doing reading comprehension activities.

I have had TA's but they "belong" to the special educator. They help out with the students in small groups, make copies/laminate, and monitor students with IEP's. They aren't in the room all day and circulate throughout the building.

I have had aides/associates in my room. Like a PP our associates work under a Special Ed teacher and help with those students who have IEPs. Sometimes they are assigned to a specific student so they work in my room the whole day. Depending on how much "their" student needs them I have them do anything from help with small group instruction, walking the room during direct instruction to help keep on eye out for those who may not get the concept, go over make up work, correcting papers, copywork etc. It does kind of depend on your style but also on the aides comfort level. Some are willing and able to do a lot with students while others need more direction and guidance. I love having that extra pair of hands and eyes in the room!

3rd grade and above at my school share one full time TA. She is responsible for taking our students to and from specials, grading papers as needed, working with small groups as needed, changing bulletin boards, etc. She basically does anything we need help with.
