Barnes, Susan; Huling-Austin, Leslie
The Model Teacher Induction Project will: (1) identify needs of beginning teachers; (2) develop and implement a model teacher induction program designed to meet those needs; (3) assess the effects of the model program on new teachers in a school setting; (4) inform the teacher education community about the program; (5) study the subsequent adoption of the program in other settings; and (6) produce user-oriented staff development resources for those working with new teachers. Components have been anticipated and planned for: (1) classroom management; (2) interactions with parents; (3) organization of content and instruction; (4) teaching skills; (5) evaluation of pupils; (6) accommodating workplace norms; and (7) the change process. Data on the effectiveness of the components are gathered through interviews, observations, journals, conferences, and administration of the Stages of Concern Questionnaire. Analysis is primarily qualitative and focuses on identifying: (1) the needs of new teachers; (2) how new teachers are affected by the program; and (3) factors affecting adoption of the program in other settings. Appended to this description of the program are sample forms used in its implementation. (Author/JD)
