    teacher development
  • An induction program should be part of a larger system of teacher development, support,
    accountability, and evaluation
  • Effective induction programs are focused on teaching practice and student learning
  • Processes of formative assessment guide the work of the mentor along with the development of the new
    teacher

    meaningful, challenging content are non-negotiable
