A Study of the Induction of 300 First-Year Teachers and Their Mentors, 1989-1990.
Houston, W. Robert; And Others
This document is a compilation of 11 separate reports on the Houston Independent School District (Texas) support program, 1989-90, which paired over 300 first-year teachers with mentors who usually taught the same subject or grade level, were assigned to the same school, were experienced, agreed to work with beginning teachers, and were paid a stipend. The 11 technical reports are derived from studies of the perceptions of the program participants in October 1989, after they had taught for 2 months, and again in April 1990, after they had taught for 8 months. The following reports are included: (1) "Teacher Conservation Project Houston Independent School District 1989-1990"; (2) "Perceptions of First-Year Teachers of the Assistance Provided by Experienced Support Teachers"; (3)"Perceptions of Experienced Support Teachers of the Assistance Provided to First-Year Teachers"; (4) "Interviews with First-Year Teachers and Their Experienced Support Teachers"; (5) "Effects of Experienced Support Teacher Assistance on First-Year Teacher Confidence, Satisfaction, and Plans To Continue Teaching; (6) "Perceptions of Certified Elementary Teachers and Alternatively Certified Teachers"; (7) "Designing Effective Induction Programs"; (8) "Perceptions of First-Year Teachers of the Assistance Provided by Experienced Support Teachers after 8 Months of School"; (9) "Perceptions of Experienced Support Teachers at the End of 8 Months of School of Their Assistance to First-Year Teachers"; (10) "Effects of Experienced Support Teacher Assistance after 8 Months of School on First-Year Teacher Confidence, Satisfaction, and Plans To Continue Teaching; and (11) "Perceptions of Certified Elementary Teachers and Alternatively Certified Teachers after Teaching 8 Months."
