Intensive Induction Shows Little Impact
Sawchuk, Stephen
Education Week, v28 n11 p1, 11 Nov 2008
After a year of implementation, two intensive teacher-induction programs did not noticeably change teachers' instructional practices, boost rates of teacher retention, or improve student achievement outcomes, a new study by the research arm of the U.S. Department of Education concludes. They did, however, succeed in increasing the time novice teachers spent with mentors to improve their teaching compared with teachers in schools lacking those programs. The study's results have left supporters of the approach seeking explanations and hoping additional study will reveal longer-term benefits.
