Effects of an Entry-Year Program on a Public School System--Implications for Teacher Induction for the 21st Century.
This summary paper was distributed to participants in a lecture/demonstration session on the Entry Year Assistance Program in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Central to the program is the Entry Year Assistance Committee, consisting of a teacher consultant, a school administrator, and an educator from an institution of higher education which focuses on the first year teacher in the classroom and provides support and advice. The presentation demonstrated: (1) how a variety of competencies to teach in an array of educational environments are acquired; (2) how professional growth develops in first year teachers; (3) how classroom management competency requirements are implemented; and (4) how the ability to promote learning is achieved in the classroom. This document provides a flow chart on the roles and responsibilities of participants in the program, a guide to the year-long activities of the program participants, sample observation forms, and an evaluation form.
