CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Teacher Paraprofessional

Certificate of Completion

 

Curriculum Code: 0829  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

The certificate offers a foundation in educational concepts and a practical introduction to classroom management and content-area instruction.  It is intended for students who may have already met federal requirements for teacher paraprofessionals by completing 60 college credits or an associate degree in a field other than education.  It is also recommended as preparation for students who plan to take the state-approved exam for paraprofessionals.  Courses in this certificate may also be applied toward an associate degree or transfer program leading to teacher certification.
