Teacher Mentoring and Induction by Hal Portner

Book Description

Afterword by Dennis Sparks 'The material is useful not only for beginners just starting to look at mentoring, but also for those with years of experience. It is one of the best books I've read on the topic' - Carole Cooper, Director of Academic Accountability, St. Charles Community Unit School District, IL 'Ensuring that our newest colleagues are properly inducted and supported must be a top priority for all educators. Teacher Mentoring and Induction is a wonderful resource for those who care about the future of the teaching profession' - Terry Dozier, Director, Center for Teacher Leadership, Virginia Commonwealth University 'The implications for the field are presented in a user-friendly manner. The examples of induction and mentoring programs are very thoughtfully examined to provide readers with multiple ways to approach and reach success in planning and implementing programs in their local setting' - Theresa Rouse, Assessment & Program Evaluation Coordinator, Monterey County Office of Education, CA Drastically reduce attrition rates and rapidly transform new teachers into experienced professionals! One out of every two new teachers will quit within five years.Yet studies show that comprehensive induction programs can slash attrition rates in half and dramatically accelerate the professional development of new teachers. Teacher Mentoring and Induction provides both an overview of the current state of induction and mentoring and cutting-edge strategies for developing a new program or improving an existing one. In this extraordinary resource, the top names in the field of induction and mentoring examine how various mentoring and induction programs developed, identify areas of effectiveness, and determine how successful programs can be replicated. The definitive book on teacher induction and mentoring, this groundbreaking work is divided into three parts, describing the developmental processes and philosophical underpinnings of exemplary programs, focusing on mentoring constructs and best practices, and connecting mentoring and induction to broader educational issues.
