In September I start with a new class of 9th and 10th graders. All of these students have emotional and/or behavioral issues severe enough that the class will be self-contained. Two of the students have 1:1 aides. With the TA in the room, my room will have four staff and six students. I have a great working relationship with the TA. How does one use a 1:1? What are they supposed to do? Are there any hints or tips for making this arrangement work? Thanks!
