Developing Induction Programs. 1985 Regional Study Awards Final Product. Final Report of the Regional Study Award Project.
Roper, Susan; And Others
This report is organized in three sections. The first section discusses the need for induction programs (including impact of the lack of such programs on beginning teachers, as well as on experienced teachers, higher education faculty, researchers, society, and children); barriers to developing such programs; and ways of overcoming those barriers. The second section describes the specific areas in which beginning teachers report needing additional preparation and the implications for preservice programs generally, as well as for the program at Southern Oregon State College. Their needs include learning to work with other adults (parents, administrators, and aides), learning to work effectively with colleagues, being given a more realistic view of the teaching profession, and being given a better, more complete theoretical framework from which to work. The third section presents some guidelines for colleges and universities who wish to collaborate with public schools in designing such programs. It identifies the specific steps that are planned in working with local school districts interested in doing a better job of helping their beginning teachers make the transition to successfully assuming the full responsibilities of a teacher.
