North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
This document provides resources and tools for program developers who are designing orientations to meet the specific needs of their novice teachers. Section one looks at key questions for program developers to consider when designing an orientation (what they want beginning teachers to know about the community, district, school, and job). Section two presents an orientation framework for the school year under the headings: topics, time frame, method, and rationale. Section three offers tips for effective program evaluation, focusing on getting started, using measurement tools, analyzing the results, and making an action plan. Five appendixes, which comprise the bulk of the document, present: (1) sample orientation agendas from several North Carolina school systems; (2) tools for novice teachers; (3) tools for mentor teachers; (4) sample evaluation instruments; and (5) a list of resources.
