The purpose of this study was to determine the implementation and effectiveness of the components of two middle school induction programs through the perceptions of three participant groups--new teachers, mentor teachers, and principals. Effectiveness was defined as a systematic processes embedded in a healthy school climate that met new teachers' personal and professional needs. Data indicated that each element of the induction program--principal and new teacher interaction; mentor teachers; collaborative structures; professional development; and new teacher orientation--met different needs of the new teacher.
