State and School District Intentions and the Implementation of New Teacher Programs. Report No. 9070.
Hoffman, James V.; Defino, Maria E.
A detailed description is presented of four beginning teacher induction programs with focus on the areas of program intentions, critical program features, and implementation proceses. The four districts from which each program came are described but not identified. Checklists for the responsibilities of beginning teachers, teacher consultants, building principals, teacher educators, and other appointed participants are presented for each of the programs. The four programs were implemented with high adherence to the state mandates for beginning teacher programs. Directors and other district level administrators were positive and knowledgable about the programs, as were most educators involved in tHe programs. There were concerns about the ability of the programs to "screen" the incoming teachers. The authors conclude that the intent of reforms directed at first year teachers needs to be further examined to ensure that program goals are being met. (CB)
