Roles & Responsibilities of Educational Support Teachers--Resource
Created by:
Donna Driscoll-Winton
Our new role conflicting with our old role!!
As rolled out by the Department of Education in the Porter/AuCoin Report,
"Strengthening Inclusion, Strengthening Schools"
"We need educational and school leaders who will see these staff members who work in Student Services and associated areas as a means to raise the equality of education in New Brunswick, not only by dealing with students and challenges, but by working as part of the core school team to ensure the success of every student" (Porter & AuCoin, 2012, p. 145).
So, how will the roll of the Methods & Resource teacher change with the implementation of Inclusion in the Province of New Brunswick?
Focus on Building Teacher Capacity
Support PLCs
“The processes of consultation, collaboration, and co-teaching are recognized as essential for effective inclusion programs” (Dettmer, Dyck and Thurston 1999 as cited in Guidelines and Standards, 2002, p. 8).
“The old saying, “Two heads are better than one” describes one of the positive effects of working together” (Duchardt, 1999, p. 186)
“when two or more professionals jointly deliver substantive instruction to a diverse, or blended group of students in a single physical space” (Cook and Friend, 1995).

One successful way to teach new content is to model and demonstrate the associated concepts and learning strategies (Jordan, 2007, p. 155).
Collecting & Analyze Data
"The professional learning community model is a grand design—a powerful new way of working together that profoundly affects the practices of schooling. But initiating and sustaining the concept requires hard work. It requires the school staff to focus on learning rather than teaching, work collaboratively on matters related to learning, and hold itself accountable for the kind of results that fuel continual improvement (DuFour, 2004)
“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” ~George Bernard Shaw

Academic Assessment

Administering, interpreting and communicating the results of assessments are time-consuming for the EST-R; however, they are a key to identifying areas of weakness so that appropriate tiered interventions can be put in place.

Why do we need to promote Inclusion?
“Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability” (CCRF 15(1)).
It's a Legal Right
It's a Moral Right
“The goal of accommodating students with a disability is to ensure their fullest possible participation, in a timely manner and to the same extent as non-disabled students, not only in the classroom, but in all aspects of the educational experience, including co- and extra-curricular activities, and to ensure that they have the opportunity to meet their individual potential” (New Brunswick Human Rights Commission, 2007, p 2).
