This anthology on teacher induction research is intended for researchers, policy makers, and practitioners in the field of teacher induction both nationally and internationally. This book is the final and major project of the Association of Teacher Educators' (ATE) Commission on Teacher Induction and Mentoring. Its importance is derived from three sources: (1) careful conceptualization of teacher induction from historical, methodological, and international perspectives; (2) systematic reviews of research literature relevant to various aspects of teacher induction including its social, cultural, and political contexts, program components and forms, and the range of its effects; (3) substantial empirical studies on the important issues of teacher induction with different kinds of methodologies that exemplify future directions and approaches to the research in teacher induction. The content of the book has direct implications for ATE's membership since part of the ATE mission is to provide opportunities for personal and professional growth of the Association membership whether members are researchers, policy makers, or practitioners in teacher learning and/or teacher induction.

Editorial Reviews

While programs of teacher induction have been supported for years, according to research conducted on their outcomes and descriptions included in journals and brochures, the need for highly qualified teachers who have been mentored and inducted into the profession has never been so great. This volume captures the major components of induction programs theory; policies; research; responsibilities of universities and school districts; impact of technology, ethnicity, and equity; and studies of teacher retention. Its authors and editors bring to the chapters considerable experience with induction and an insider's view, as well as research on the effects of induction on teacher effectiveness and tenure.
