Novice Teachers' Perceptions of a Multifaceted Mentoring Program and the Needs of Early-Career Science Teachers.
While research indicates that new teachers have several needs, experienced teachers and novice teachers may have differing views of the importance of these needs. In addition, needs may vary due to changes in society, special geographic needs, or small school issues. This study is an analysis of information gathered during and following the first year of a mentoring program to determine how early-career teachers perceive the mentoring process and its outcomes. The successes and weaknesses of the program are reported and well as recommendations for future mentoring support programs. (Contains 10 references.) (MVL)
