Hutto, Nora, Ed.; And Others
This manual was designed to assist individuals and groups throughout Texas who are assisting teachers. The manual is composed of 8 sections which include: mentoring models, induction models, other models, adult development, mentoring, induction, instructional planning, and reference material. Also included are the mentoring and induction models developed and guided by best practice from across the state. The models for mentoring include a job description for mentoring, suggestions for training before school begins (preservice training), and on-going training. The models are different in complexity, orientation, and time requirements and include concerns to be addressed for new teachers in addition to peer assistance. The induction section includes competencies of the beginning teacher and models for beginning an induction program with a service center, university, or teacher center as host. Also included are the goals of an induction program. Sections within the manual are designed to provide information and assistance to individuals and organizations as they develop mentoring and induction programs. Three complete mentor training programs now in existence are included. (LL)
