Examining Model for Aiding New Teachers

Developed and managed by the New Teacher Center (NTC), the NTC Induction Model is a comprehensive and systemic approach to support beginning teachers (i.e., teachers new to the profession). The induction model aims to accelerate the effectiveness of beginning teachers at increasing student learning by providing one-on-one mentoring and professional development in a supportive school environment. The NTC works with school districts and state departments of education to design, develop, and implement induction programs that are aligned with both district priorities and NTC standards. In addition to the analysis of the teacher retention outcomes, the study examined impacts on (a) student reading achievement, (b) student math achievement, (c) teacher implementation of literacy lessons, (d) content of literacy lessons, (e) classroom culture, (f) teacher feelings of preparedness to instruct, (g) teacher feelings of preparedness to work with students, (h) teacher feelings of preparedness to work with other school staff, (i) teacher satisfaction with school, (j) teacher satisfaction with class, and (k) teacher satisfaction with teaching career.
