A Workshop: The World of the First Year Teacher. Final Report.
Murphy, Patricia D.; Priebe, Donald W.
Rationale, plans, and results are reported of a State workshop designed to bring all vocational teacher educators together to identify the problems of the first-year teacher, develop strategies to use in helping them, and utilize those strategies in teacher education programs. The problems identified as those of a first-year teacher are listed, the top-ranked five being inability to establish priorities, poor management, idealism versus realism, poor self-concept, and questionable commitment to teaching. Small group work session reports focus on three of the areas (environment, management, and self-concept). Each includes notes on the problem, specific areas of concern, and an action plan (techniques and methods) for helping the teacher. Workshop evaluation design and results are reported along with conclusions and recommendations for similar future workshops. Appendixes contain a bibliography, list of participants (20) and guests (3), a list of courses and materials for first-year teachers, and the workshop evaluation questionnaire. (HD)
