"Les Tickle's work is notable for its solid grounding in excellent fieldwork and the sympathetic voice he gives to teachers. His research in teacher education has helped shape our understanding of what teachers do and how we think about their roles and their learning. Because of his affinity for colleagues in the education profession he provides sensible guidance based on scholarly work which makes sense to the people about and for whom it is written" - Professor Howard Johnston, University of South Florida, Tampa. This book focuses on the stage of induction into the teaching profession. It draws on research and practical experiences, including those of new teachers, and considers professional development in the context of international concerns for the quality of education and standards of teaching. In asking 'how can teacher education for this career stage be best conceptualised, designed, and provided?' the author has explored in detail what it is that teachers are expected to know and be able to do on entry into the profession. He challenges some common assumptions about induction, and about teachers' knowledge, considering both in relation to the school curriculum. The book offers a re-conceptualisation of induction; practical principles for the development of new teachers' practice which will enable them to contribute actively to the reconstruction of education; and proposals for support programmes to go beyond the first year of teaching. It will be important reading for teacher educators and school based mentors with responsibility for induction and continuing professional development.

Based on a three-year study, the authors describe how comprehensive teacher induction systems can both provide teacher support and promote learning more about how to teach. This book calls for re-thinking what teacher induction is about, whom it should serve, what the ‘curriculum’ of induction should be, and the policies, programs, and practices needed to deliver it.

Before today’s teachers are ready to instruct the intellectual leaders of tomorrow, they must first be trained themselves. Every teacher experiences an induction process that can make their early years as an educator nerve-racking. Focusing on this period of time in a teacher’s career can lead to greater teacher retention and success. Examining the Teacher Induction Process in Contemporary Education Systems addresses the construct of teacher induction through theoretical and empirical research. It also provides an in-depth conceptualization of being a novice teacher through micro-political realities of teaching in different geographical and cultural regions. While highlighting topics including adaptation challenges, mentor-mentee interaction, and teacher retention, this book is ideally designed for school administrators, early career teachers, educational researchers, educational professionals, and academicians seeking current research on early career educator adaptation and practices.

This book's 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.

Extracts from the text: "Why are fifteen million children and youth in poverty not achieving when we know that low-income students excel in the classrooms of “star” teachers (who comprise approximately 8 percent of the teaching force)?" "Whose needs or interests are being met in education reform today?" “In my own institution, there has not been a systematic assessment of the effectiveness of the basic teacher education program since the institution was founded over a century ago as a teachers college. Imagine, not one ever!” "Teachers who empathize with students and the life challenges they face soon realize that the dysfunctional bureaucracies will not permit them to meet the needs of their students. Half of the starry-eyed beginners are gone in five years or less." "Why does teacher education focus on the managerial, instrumental or delivery system aspects of the profession?" "The expert advice dispensed by schools of education regarding what future teachers should do is not connected to any theory of learning, or to any reality of life in school classrooms." "Why has the recruitment process resulted in a cohort of teachers who are unable to connect with their students?" "Does a qualified teacher equate to a quality teacher?" "The best hope of getting more effective teachers from university teacher preparation programs is to base their budgets on the number of their graduates who serve in challenging schools and their effectiveness with children and youth. At the district level, the salaries of hiring officials should be based on how well these officials identify and retain quality teachers." In this book, 12 distinguished scholars provide a hard-hitting, thoroughly researched, historical and theoretical critique of our schools of education, and offer clear recommendations on what must be done to ensure all children can achieve their potential, and contribute to a vibrant, democratic society.

This study was designed to investigate the relationship between participation in a formalized teacher induction program and teacher satisfaction. Teacher turnover, attrition, and the forecasted teaching shortage have made teacher induction programs a tool to train and retain new teachers to the teaching profession and new to school districts throughout the State of Illinois. This study used the Abbreviated Job Descriptive Index (AJDI) to assess levels of satisfaction among teachers. An electronic survey was sent to all 148 "middle school, junior high schools" in the 54 Large Unit District Association in the State of Illinois. A total of 297 teachers responded to the survey. Results of the study showed a significant effect of participation in a formalized teacher induction program on general teacher satisfaction. Teachers who participated in a formalized teacher induction program had higher levels of satisfaction compared with teachers who did not participate in a formalized teacher induction program. Supporting research questions demonstrated that teachers who had a favorable teacher induction experience had higher levels of satisfaction compared with teachers who did not have a favorable teacher induction experience. A marginally significant moderating effect of ethnicity was evident, with White teachers who participated in a formalized induction program having higher levels of satisfaction than White teachers who did not participate in a formalized induction program, while non-White teachers who participated in a formalized induction program had lower satisfaction than their non-White peers who did not participate.
