Instructionally Precise – Supporting Early Career Teachers

With a dozen draft posts unpublished I thought it was time to ship something.

Here’s a guest post from my colleague Esther Carelse

I love this phrase “Instructionally Precise” from the Toronto induction teacher program.

Jim Strachan has worked hard since 2004 to establish a program that serves the needs of new teachers in the TDSB.

Good idea to tie in teacher support and mentor development with the family of schools model in order to build capacity, relationships and effectiveness.

Renaming “new teacher” to “early career 0-5 years” is a good way to go because so many teachers change teaching roles especially in years of budget deficits.

Side note
Jim’s video presentation on their teacher support will be on the regional mentoring network blog
