The course credit (½ credit for each semester) for 2013-14 Teacher Aide is determined by seeking to meet several stated objectives selected from Career Objectives 2002 & 2009, and Character Education which may all be found in the Alabama Courses of Study.  Students are also asked to become members of Future Teachers of Alabama to encourage alliance to a professional student organization recognized by the state of Alabama.  Local dues are $4.00 per semester and state dues are $2.00 annually.  Evaluation will be made through scoring rubrics, which have been created by the FTA advisor, to reflect their degrees of mastery from both job assignments at the three schools in the Elmore County Eclectic community and the 12 additional projects outside of the classroom assignments.
