How To Meet the Needs of Beginning Teachers. Tips for Principals from NASSP.
Crain, Carole L.; Young, Terrell A.
The performance enhancement model (PEM) presented in this information sheet will help administrators and supervisors establish a school program to meet the special needs of first-year teachers. Inservice sessions for new teacher training should be played with the help of peer supervisors who are chosen by the principal for their teaching and organizational ability and training should include seminars on the following basic themes: (1) getting started; (2) classroom management; (3) instruction; (4) diagnosis and assessment; and (5) parental involvement. An ongoing procedure for supporting and assisting beginning teachers should be established that will include networking, a system for feedback, and involving first-year teachers in planning a summer enrichment program so that performance enhancement can continue throughout the year. A PEM checklist is included. (MLF)
