The First Years of Teaching: Background Papers and a Proposal.
Griffin, Gary A., Ed.; Millies, Suzanne, Ed.
The papers in this volume were commissioned to provide information useful for planning, implementing, and assessing the impact of new teacher programs, such as the Illinois Initial Year of Teaching Program. These papers were presented at a conference held at the University of Chicago in September 1987 on the initial year of teaching to provide a set of position statements about beginning to teach. Titles and authors include: (1) "State and District Structures to Support Initial Year of Teaching Programs" (Beatrice A. Ward); (2) "Workplace Conditions of Teacher Quality and Commitment: Implications for the Design of Teacher Induction Programs" (Susan J. Rosenholtz); (3) "The Role of Higher Education in Initial Year of Teaching Programs" (Kenneth R. Howey and Nancy L. Zimpher); (4)"Learning the Language of Practice: Implications for Beginning Year of Teaching Programs" (Robert J. Yinger); (5) "The Process and Content of Initial Year of Teaching Programs" (Kathy Carter and Virginia Richardson Koehler); (6) "On Helping the Beginning Teacher" (Nathalie J. Gehrke); and (7) "Assessment Issues in Initial Year of Teaching Programs" (Susan Barnes). The final paper, "A State Program for the Initial Year of Teaching" (Gary A. Griffin), offers a set of recommendations drawn from the conference. A list of educators invited to the Initial Year of Teaching Conference is included. (CB)
