In Leading the Teacher Induction and Mentoring Program, Second Edition, Barry W. Sweeny provides an effective, proven model for developing, implementing, evaluating, and sustaining an induction and mentoring program that results in highly qualified teachers.

A nationally known mentoring expert, the author offers comprehensive guidance and a wealth of practical strategies that allow leaders to support mentors and novice teachers and to promote school improvement and professional development initiatives. Extensively revised to include the latest research, this second edition:

  • Presents step-by-step directions for each part of the program development and implementation process
  • Links induction and mentoring to districtwide goals for improved teaching practice and increased student achievement
  • Includes sample schedules, templates, and reproducible forms
  • Provides solid recommendations for avoiding pitfalls and increasing program effectiveness

Ideal for principals, district administrators, teacher trainers, and mentor leaders, this resource offers essential tools for designing and implementing a new induction and mentoring program or improving an existing one.
