Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This chapter examines the implementation and outcomes of state-funded induction programs in Illinois, and finds important contributions to increasing the effectiveness of beginning teachers. However, even when program supports for new teachers are intensive and focus on instruction, a poor school climate and weak leadership can undermine the program. The authors question the current conception of new teacher induction as an isolated program and call for a more comprehensive approach linking teacher induction with whole-school improvement.
