Hall, Gene E.; And Others
A forum, convened to consider the subject of beginning teacher induction, focused on questions about: (1) the importance of the induction phase; (2) whose domain induction is; (3) what happens to the teacher in this phase; (4) training that is most needed in this phase; (5) how induction is related to licensure; and (6) whether induction is unique to the United States. An introduction to the proceedings (Gene E. Hall) is followed by the following presentations: (1) "Induction--An Overview" (Gary A. Griffin); (2) "Why Bother with Induction?" (Kevin Ryan); (3) "Why Bother with Teacher Induction?" (Kenneth M. Zeichner); (4) "What Happens to the Teacher during Induction?" (J. T. Sandefur and Ann Lieberman); (5) "What Should Happen to the Teacher during Induction?" (Karen Kepler Zumwalt); (6) "Sameness Drives Me Up a Wall" (Elizabeth Dillon-Peterson); (7) "Teacher Induction--Who Is Responsible?" (Richard C. Wallace, Jr.); (8) "Summary of Analyses for Lack of Recognition of the Importance of Induction in U.S. Teacher Education (Sam J. Yarger); (9) "Why Is There Not Greater Recognition of Induction in the United States?" (R. P. Tisher).
