Guidelines for Principals.
National Association of Secondary School Principals, Reston, VA.
This booklet outlines suggested procedures for administering a four-phase induction program for beginning teachers, a continuing process of orientation and professional growth throughout the first year of teaching: (1) The Summer Before School Starts, (2) A Special Beginning Teacher Orientation to the School, (3) The First Semester, and (4) The Second Semester. Emphasis is on the principal's responsibility for the assignment of the beginning teacher and of the cooperating teacher and for the scheduling of released time for both to provide for regular group meetings designed to assist in the adjustment to teaching and the development of skills. The program outline notes the role of the cooperating teacher who is largely responsible for conducting the discussions, conferences, and activities which such an advisory program would include. An annotated bibliography suggests six books and two newsletters for use by the cooperating teacher. (SP 003 109 and SP 003 110 are related documents. A 150-frame, 25-minute filmstrip, "Thank God It's Friday," and accompanying record also available from the Association for $12.00. Three documents plus filmstrip and record, $13.50.) (JS)
