The Ohio Partnership for Excellence in Paraprofessional Preparation (OPEPP), a project within the University of Cincinnati Systems Development & Improvement Center, is providing several online workshops this fall to assist districts in using paraprofessional services more effectively in order to support student learning. Workshops are open to all districts and schools and would be especially useful for educator teams.

Helping with Instruction

Workshop Description:
This workshop is designed for teacher-paraprofessional teams who seek to understand how
paraprofessionals can expand their role on a team with responsibility for providing instruction. Based on
the principles of Universal Design for Learning, this workshop offers guidance about how paraprofessionals
can collaborate with a supervising teacher and other members of an instructional team to help students
learn. Participants will:

• identify five phases of the instructional cycle;
• understand Universal Design for Learning principles and their impact on student learning;
• apply instructional scaffolding strategies;
• describe learning targets; and
• identify ways to improve students’ study strategies and test-taking skills.

Questions about the workshops may be sent to Kathy Richards at kathryn.richards@uc.edu.
