Education Assistants provide valuable support as schools work to integrate children with a variety of needs into the classroom. The Red River College Education Assistant program provides 6 months of intensive work to understand inclusive education, educational theories, and the children served by graduates. This guide serves as a starting point for writing assignments and to supplement classroom work as EAs build a foundation for their career.
