Description

By Hal Portner

Drastically reduce attrition rates and rapidly transform new teachers into experienced professionals! 
One out of every two new teachers will quit teaching within five years; however, 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 combines an overview of the current state of induction and mentoring with cutting-edge strategies for developing a new program or improving an existing one. In this extraordinary resource, the top names in this field examine how various mentoring and induction programs are developed, identifying areas of effectiveness to determine how successful programs can be replicated.

The definitive book on teacher induction and mentoring, this groundbreaking work is divided into three parts: Part I describes the developmental processes and philosophical underpinnings of exemplary programs, Part II focuses on mentoring constructs and best practices, and Part III connects mentoring and induction to broader educational issues.
