Teachers' Career Stages and Availability and Appropriateness of Incentives in Teaching.
McDonnell, John H.; And Others
Evidence on teachers' careers suggests that there are identifiable career stages through which teachers progress. Inherent in these career stages is the need for differentiated teacher incentives and development programs. The premise that the stages of development are important in planning effective professional incentives and development programs is well accepted. A model describing the dynamics of teachers' career cycles offers a view of career progression which reflects influences from environmental factors, both personal and organizational. The components of the career cycle are: (1) preservice, (2) induction, (3) competency building, (4) enthusiastic and growing, (5) career frustration, (6) stable and stagnant, (7) career wind-down, and (8) career exit. Appropriate incentives for each of these career stages are discussed. (JD)
