An Evaluation of "Point"--A Program for the Orientation and Induction of New Teachers.
This report evaluates "A Program for the Orientation and Induction of New Teachers" workshop (POINT) Developed by the District of Columbia Public School System. Forty-one elementary school teachers participated in the POINT workshop designed to develop and upgrade the professional staff. The focus is placed on developing a strategy to prevent "new teacher failures" and increasing the possibilities for success and satisfaction for the new entrants to the teaching profession. Phase I of the program was a 2-week period of intensive preservice training and orientation prior to the opening of school, September, 1971. Phase II initiated a program of continuing support involving direct assistance and in-service training for the first semester of the school year 1971-72. Phase III consisted of three workshop days of release time during the first semester of school year 1971-72. The participants were exposed to various methods and techniques for improving their classroom instructional program. Data collected and analyzed indicated that the POINT workshop was successful in meeting the objectives set forth by the POINT staff. It was recommended that workshops for new teachers be continued. Appendixes include program materials. (Author/MJM)
