Creating Support Systems for New Teachers: A Handbook for Campus Administrators Serving Diverse Student Populations.
Johnson, Roy L., Ed.; Montemayor, Aurelio M., Ed.
This handbook addresses questions that school administrators may have about support assistance programs for new teachers. Following an introduction, the guide is organized into five sections. The first section describes the Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Chapter 2. Section 2 examines support needs of new teachers in critical shortage areas and addresses the implications of support systems based on the needs of new teachers from ethnically-diverse populations. The third section examines the role of central administration in addressing the need to support new teachers and discusses benefits which accrue to the school district when such programs are established. In the fourth section, roles of the principal, the support teacher, the new teacher, and university personnel are examined, and checklists on the roles of school personnel are presented. The final section presents summary recommendations for the establishment of support systems for new minority teachers and teachers in critical shortage areas. The following information is appended: a listing of project directors; detailed project profiles; data tables on support needs of new teachers; a discussion of conferences and publications; and a list of resources.
