Teacher Recruiting: Organization, Techniques, Forms and Samples.
Rhodes, Eric, Ed.; Gibbs, Helen M., Ed.
This handbook on teacher recruitment makes suggestions for school systems to follow in all facets of recruiting. Changes in school age population, school program requirements, and teacher turnover are analyzed in a discussion of how to estimate teacher needs. Since recruitment materials are essential in attracting prospective applicants, the variety of such materials is discussed and specific recommendations are made as to what information should be included. Suggestions on the use of photographs, art work, color, paper, printing, and writing are also made. Suggestions for finding prospects include hints on improving contacts with teacher training institutions, recruiting in the community, reaching experienced teachers who wish tomove, contacting military retirees, and using Federal resources. Typical forms, letters, and recruitment packages used in the hiring process are considered and special attention is paid to the technique and form of personal interviews. Sample recruitment materials, evaluative devices, recruitment letters, and application forms are appended. (TT)
