Summary

This paper examines beginning teacher induction programs in both the United States and Great Britain. Descriptions are given of the scope and activities in 11 selected programs in the United States: (1) the NASSP Project; (2) Washington State; (3) Oswego, New York; (4) Hawaii; (5) Wheeling, Illinois; (6) Wilmette, Illinois; (7) New York City; (8) South Texas; (9) Washington, D.C.; (10) Salem, New Hampshire; and (11) Alabama. The major elements in these programs are: (1) released time for beginning teachers; (2) an experienced teacher mentor; (3) released time for mentors; (4) supervisory training for mentors; and (5) instructional contact with university personnel. A discussion is presented on the results of evaluations of the programs. Five classes of variables were included in the evaluations: (1) user satisfaction and extent of program implementation; (2) teacher turnover; (3) teacher performance; (4) teacher attitudes and morale; and (5) pupil performances and attitudes. A description is presented of the Teacher Induction Pilot Scheme (TIPS) which was implemented in the urban districts of Liverpool and Northumberland in England. A five-page bibliography is included.
