Comprehensive Teacher Induction: Linking Teacher Induction to Theory
Keilwitz, Heather A.
Online Submission
Teacher retention is a wide concern in education and in response school districts throughout the United States are developing more comprehensive teacher induction programs. Components of teacher induction programs that have assisted with successful teacher development include release time for teacher observation, assignment of a knowledgeable mentor, and supportive administration. Teacher confidence is a characteristic that is essential in the development of new educators, yet sometimes ignored during induction programs. This paper recognizes the features of a comprehensive teacher induction program, and how tenets of self-efficacy and the self-determination theory can be linked to practice to encourage the development of a beginning teacher and promote longevity in a teacher's career.
