Based on a study of three well-regarded induction programs, this chapter examines how state and district policies regarding new teacher induction shape the practice of mentors and the learning of beginning teachers. The authors argue that induction policies must help program leaders, district and school administrators, and mentor teachers understand the potential of development-oriented mentoring and the conditions on which it depends.

by Barnett Berry & Ann Byrd — 2012
This chapter points to a new era of teaching and employs current research surrounding new teacher induction and mentoring programs to underline the need for an innovative model of support for novice teachers. Berry and Byrd draw on their experiences building virtual communities of teachers and a virtual mentoring pilot program to examine the prospects for increasing consistency in the effectiveness of new teacher support through online networks.

by Marjorie Wechsler, Kyra Caspary, Daniel Humphrey & Kavita Matsko — 2012
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.

It is important that content specialists have induction programs that are tailored to their needs, given that content knowledge is important during instruction. Unfortunately, most content specialists (including science teachers) don't experience content-focused induction programs. In an effort to illuminate the need for this type of induction program, this chapter provides an overview of the programs and research that the author has conducted with beginning secondary teachers.

This study provides a detailed portrait of typical induction support provided to beginning elementary school teachers during the 2005-2006 school year in 17 high-poverty urban school districts around the country.

by Richard Ingersoll & Michael Strong — 2012
This chapter provides a review of empirical studies that have evaluated the effects of induction. The chapter's objective is to provide researchers, policy makers, and educators with a reliable and current assessment of what is known and not known about the effectiveness of teacher induction and mentoring programs. A second objective is to identify gaps in the research base and pinpoint relevant questions that have not been addressed and that warrant further research.

by Andrew Wayne — 2012
This final chapter digests the core chapters of this volume, which draws together some of the most sophisticated thinking on new teacher induction from the last decade. In so doing, this chapter attends to five key understandings about induction programs, including their context, design, implementation, and outcomes. These understandings emerge as highly relevant to those who design induction programs as well as researchers, as they continue to build the knowledge base on teacher induction.

In this article, we examine how international field experiences promote cross-cultural awareness in U.S. American preservice teachers through experiential learning. The findings we present are based on a 6-year study of a short-term study abroad program in Honduras and contribute to the effort to prepare future teachers for culturally and linguistically diverse classrooms beginning at the preservice level.

by Steven Athanases, Juliet Wahleithner & Lisa Bennett — 2012
Student teachers in a teacher credential program featuring teacher inquiry evidenced many indicators of attention to the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students in their inquiry products and processes.

by Marylin Chambliss, Patricia Alexander & Jeremy Price — 2012
This analytical article focuses a philosophical lens on quality teaching in general, mathematics and reading education, and prominent research paradigms. It then turns the same lens on the High-Quality Teaching (HQT) study, an examination of what teachers do to help fourth- and fifth-grade students succeed in reading and mathematics. Our intent is to demonstrate how such philosophical scrutiny can lead to a fuller understanding of high-quality teaching in its varied manifestations.

by Mary Juzwik, Michael Sherry, Samantha Caughlan, Anne Heintz & Carlin Borsheim-Black — 2012
Using emerging digital technologies within a teacher education pedagogy emphasizing expanded definitions and modes of literacy can support teacher candidates in understanding, leading, collaboratively critiquing, and improving classroom interactions across diverse contexts. We describe and theorize a program-wide project to implement such a pedagogy in secondary English teacher preparation: Video Based Response and Revision (VBBR).

by Jason Irizarry — 2011
This article reports the findings of an ethnographic study in which a cohort of Latino/a preservice teachers was followed from the teachers’ recruitment into college, through their undergraduate years and, for most, their eventual transition into the teaching profession. Using critical race theory (CRT) and Latino/a critical race theory (LatCrit) as analytic lenses, various sites within an institution of higher education where students experienced racialized marginalization are identified.

by Kristie Phillips, Laura Desimone & Thomas Smith — 2011
This article assesses the relationship between teachers’ participation in content-focused professional development and state and school policies.

by Jane Neapolitan — 2011
The idea of “currency” is implied in the title, for, as many of our contributors discuss within their chapters, the professional development school (PDS) cannot and will not prevail in its present form without dedicated fiscal backing and sustained commitment for integrating the PDS effort into new structures.

by Alison Rutter — 2011
As a result of the government’s criticism, a plethora of reform agendas and reports were commissioned, trying to make sense of the issues and find long-term solutions. Among these are four key efforts that laid the groundwork for the professional development schools (PDS) movement.

by Jane Neapolitan & Marsha Levine — 2011
In this chapter, we build on the discussion of the history, trends, and issues of the PDS effort described in Chapter 1 (Rutter, 2011) while examining the approaches for PDS implementation set forth by organizations that have had a major influence on PDS development.

by Kenneth Howey — 2011
The authors don’t attempt to overstate the scope of development or level of impact with respect to PDS. On the positive side, they remind us that hundreds of NCATE’s accredited institutions report that they are engaged in PDS partnerships, involving at least one, and often more than one, school partner.

by Sharon Castle & Kathleen Reilly — 2011
In this chapter, we build on the discussion of the history, trends, and issues of the PDS effort described in Chapter 1 (Rutter, 2011) while examining the approaches for PDS implementation set forth by organizations that have had a major influence on PDS development.

by Jim Nolan Jr., Doris Grove, Horatio Leftwich, Kelly Mark & Brian Peters — 2011
The focus of this chapter is on the evidence to date that documents the impact of PDS engagement on four specific groups of participants: veteran P–12 teachers, university faculty, P–12 school principals, and parents and community members.

by Pia Lindquist Wong & Ronald Davis Glass — 2011
In this chapter, we review the existing literature with a focus on three key areas: (1) the ways in which PDS models are structured to improve student learning, yielding a rich description of PDS interventions for student achievement; (2) the impact of PDSs on student learning and achievement, with a specific focus on publications that used rigorous research designs and/or captured student achievement with multiple measures; and (3) the extent to which PDSs have a differential impact on the learning of low-income and culturally and racially diverse students.

by A. Lin Goodwin — 2011
All the authors also caution us that the evidence is not always robust, that much more evidence is needed, and that there are many additional related lines of inquiry that require exploration. But, these cautions aside, the three chapters each use the research to go inside PDS settings and classrooms and provide an up-close look at implementation and results in relation to teacher preparation, professional development, and impact on students.

by Bernard Badiali — 2011
The purpose of the chapter is to serve program evaluators and stakeholders as they formulate an approach to assessing the effectiveness of their professional development school (PDS) program.

by Jeanne Tunks — 2011
This chapter represents an in-depth study of action research in the PDS with recommendations for future practice and collaboration.

by Linda Catelli — 2011
My approach to writing this chapter is to comment first on the two essays and then provide readers with my personal history intertwined with my own perspective and recommendations for the future. My history and past experiences with action research in school–university partnership settings and with schools as self-renewing institutions have dramatically shaped my perspective on PDS as leverage for education change, improvement, and reform.

by Carole Basile & Cindy Gutierrez — 2011
In this chapter, we briefly examine the literature related to roles, structures, and governance and the typical players in PDSs, while making a case for the rediscovery of the community as having a critical role in PDS work.

by Diane Yendol-Hoppey & Jason Smith — 2011
The rapid proliferation of newly established professional development schools (PDS) partnerships accentuated concern associated with the lack of conceptual clarity of the PDS concept itself. Levine and Churins (1999) warned the PDS community that this innovative institution needed standards to ensure the necessary rigor, accountability, and sustainability.

by Donna Wiseman — 2011
Long-term PDSs have been successful at navigating accountability, resource, and infrastructure issues as partnerships are shaped and modified to meet the needs of the schools and universities.

by Lee Teitel — 2011
Writing this afterword pulls me back in. The fine scholarly work of the Yearbook—its focus on history and purpose, on research and impacts, on structures, roles and accountability, and on leveraging change—has enabled me to reconnect with my roots and passion. Rip Van Winkle, looking with a fresh set of eyes on something that is both familiar and removed. Here’s what stands out to me.

by Morva McDonald, Kersti Tyson, Kate Brayko, Michael Bowman, John Delport & Fuyu Shimomura — 2011
In this article, the authors share findings from a longitudinal study of one teacher education program’s community-based learning innovation. The work examines the ways in which partnerships with community organizations can add to the resources available to candidates as they prepare to become teachers in diverse urban schools.

by Duck-Joo Kwak — 2011
This article explores an unjustly neglected humanistic approach to teacher education by showing how Stanley Cavell’s practice of ordinary language philosophy can be reformulated as a pedagogical practice in the essay form.

  • Streaming videos showcasing the work of exemplary teachers
    With a shortage of teachers nationwide, but particularly in the New York City area, more and more educators are entering school this fall with little or no hands-on classroom experience. Over-crowded classes, pressure to “teach to tests,” and a more diversified student population will also put added stress on this new crop of teachers. Guidance in the form of professional development, via the Internet, is now available providing access to an archive of wisdom and best practices from some of the greatest teachers on the front lines. Teachers Network, with a grant from the AT&T Foundation, has developed a series of interactive streaming videos, which offers practical instruction for the novice teacher, and serves as a form of “digital mentoring.”
