Beginnings: The Orientation of New Teachers.
This booklet is designed to assist Catholic elementary school principals in planning for the orientation of new teachers. A general framework describes orientation in the context of staff development and new teacher orientation. It is suggested that, before school opens, workshops for the new, and then the total, faculty be given, focusing on topics such as school goals, the teacher role, and the school community. Ongoing orientation activities for the entire faculty can encourage expressions of need and the sharing of insights. Appendices provide a brief history of Catholic schools in the United States, an essay on preparing an inspirational talk, characteristics of Catholic school teachers, and suggested guidelines for teachers in Catholic schools and prayer forms. A list of 29 references about staff development and religious education is included. (FG)
