The Networked Teacher: How New Teachers Build Social Networks for Professional Support. Series on School Reform
Baker-Doyle, Kira J.
Teachers College Press
New teachers need support from their peers and mentors to locate resources, information, new ideas, emotional support, and inspiration. This timely book explains the research and theory behind social networks (face-to-face and online), describes what effective social networking for educators looks like, reveals common obstacles that new teachers face in establishing support networks, and offers valuable practical advice. The author follows the stories of four first-year teachers, illustrating the significant impact that social support networks can have on teachers' lives and challenging common misconceptions of professional support. This book offers action guides to help teachers become "intentional networkers," including a companion website with tools for networking and collaboration. This is a must-have resource for pre- and in-service teachers. [Foreword by Ann Lieberman.]
