Using Research Knowledge To Improve Teacher Education: Implementation of an Induction Program for Inquiring Professionals--Part A: The Project Portrayal, Part B: The Program Assessment Report, Part C: The Practice Profile, Appendices.
Zimpher, Nancy L.; Rieger, Susan R.
This 3-year project, part of an ongoing collaborative program development effort, is aimed at improvement of teacher education between Ohio State University and five Franklin County (Ohio) school districts. The project established a pilot program to help beginning teachers explore their own needs and classroom processes with the assistance of mentor teachers. Data was also collected about induction through involvement with teacher participants and through evaluation of the pilot effort toward the creation of a demonstration induction year project. The first section presents an overview of the project. Section 2 explains in detail and analyzes the findings from 10 project outcome questions and 11 project implementation questions which guided the study. The project implementation questions document specific aspects of the project and describe what actually occurred during the development and implementation years. Section 3 is a practice profile which provides an outline for developing and implementing an induction program for inquiring professionals. The first part of this section describes the project demographics and the second part describes the implementation requirements. The final section consists of 24 appendices which elucidate critical features described in the report and present clarifying details on the key features of the project. (JD)
