I work at a school that is Title 1. Things have just recently changed. I was wondering if this is going on in other Title 1 schools in Illinois or if it is just our district. The way it used to be is that one of the 3 reading teacher would come in our room during literacy centers and work with the low students. Then in the afternoon (3 times a week for a half hour) they would come and pull out the kids that still need extra help. Now they are saying that they can't pull out kids because they are missing science and social studies. So now the reading teachers is going to be coming in our rooms and helping us with whatever we are doing. For example, if we are doing a science experiment they will walk around and help the students. Or make sure they are staying on track or if they need help writing something in their science journal they will do that. It is like they are aides. Anyone else going through this? thoughts on this.... thanks and sorry so long.
