This monograph contains an introduction, a recapitulation, and four papers on the concept of mentoring as an effective component of the induction program. The first paper, "Support for New Teachers" (Sandra J. Odell), develops the idea that a mentor must be an excellent classroom teacher, possess wisdom and skill in listening and questioning, and be facile at conflict resolution. The second paper, "A Definition for Developing Self-Reliance" (Richard S. Kay), defines mentoring as a comprehensive effort toward helping the individual develop self-reliance and personal accountability in a defined environment. The third paper, "Squishy Business" (Leslie L. Huling-Austin), presents a model of mentoring based on three styles: responder, colleague, and instructor. The appropriate style depends on the specific needs of the new teacher, the characteristics of the mentor, and the characteristics of the overall induction program. The fourth paper, "A New Knowledge Base for an Old Practice" (Theresa M. Bey), suggests that mentors be exposed to experiences and information in the areas of mentoring, clinical supervision, coaching, adult development, and interpersonal skills. Lastly, C. Thomas Holmes brings closure to the publication by highlighting the key aspects of each chapter. (JD)

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.
