Summary

A pilot study for a large scale survey and case study to be conducted in the Chicago, Illinois area asked experienced teachers their perceptions of the process of teacher induction in their districts and ways to improve it. Twenty-six New Jersey elementary school teachers responded to an open-ended questionnaire and semi-structured interviews. Most of the respondents agreed that the assignment of a mentor or support teacher was a major priority. In response to the question of a first priority for orienting new teachers, a majority of the experienced teachers felt that helping beginners with classroom management and discipline was the first priority. This was followed closely by explaining the school curriculum, especially in the instructional programs in reading and mathematics. The need for some formal training for mentor teachers emerged as an important conclusion. (JD)
