Preparation for the First Year of Teaching: Beginning Teachers' Views about Their Needs
Beck, Clive; Kosnik, Clare; Rowsell, Jennifer
New Educator, v3 n1 p51-73 Jan 2007
In this study we asked beginning elementary teachers about their needs as first-year teachers and the adequacy of their preservice program in helping to meet them. The new teachers varied in satisfaction with their preparation but showed considerable consensus on their needs. They felt the study of both theory and practice should be conducted in depth and focused on certain key areas. The main areas mentioned included comprehensive planning for the whole year, how to set up the program, assessment and evaluation, and implementation of effective group work.
